This is a weeping ginkgo. The leaves appear to be small and without any dent.

I looked, but cannot see any tears in the photo. Are you sure it's weeping?

RE: Weeping Ginkgo ...

I don't believe it is weeping... I don't think a weeping variety of that size exists. I have seen many old Ginkgo trees that have form like that.

Brandon, you need to study English language more :)

Weeping here is used in names of tree and shrub varieties with drooping branches.

I see many old trees with up-right forms as well :)

jujujojo - that's English language, not English literature. Brandon was pulling your leg.

Many of the branchlets are weeping but surely not a weeping form.

The leaf form is interesting though.

'Pendula' and 'Weeping Wonder' are a couple weeping selections.

RE: Weeping Ginkgo ...

I like that tree, I would love to have that outside my window

Thank you. It has been corrected.

... 'Pendula' and 'Weeping Wonder' sound like wonderful trees. I will definitely look into these.

Now, how about variegated cultivars?

RE: Weeping Ginkgo ...

Most of the variegated cultivars are unstable…in fact not one has been demonstrated to be stable. 'Weeping Wonder' used to be called 'Mutant Weeper', probably a better name as it eventually displays multiple morphologies. No Ginkgo is going to weep like a cherry, just be forewarned.
