‘Majestic Butterflies’ is a dwarf, vase shaped, variegated Ginkgo. It is a chance mutation from ‘Jade Butterflies’ discovered by Crispin Silva. It has variegated foliage with irregular streaks of green, cream and yellow. The variegated coloration remains throughout the growing season, and then turns the typical golden yellow for the fall. Similar to ‘Jade Butterflies’, its fan shaped leaves are said to resemble green butterflies, but in this case, green and white.
It is a male clone, which will not produce smelly fruit.
Ginkgo is sometimes called the maidenhair tree due to its beautiful fan shaped leaves that resemble a maidenhair fern frond. It is one of the most pollution-tolerant trees and works well in the city.
