Ginkgo biloba "JC Raulston Weeping" has a very personal history for me.  Many years ago, I was in a botanical garden in BC Canada and saw a very beautiful form of weeping Gingko  When I got back home, I mentioned that plant to my dear friend J. C. Raulston.  He was familiar with the plant and said he would get me some scionwood for grafting at the appropriate time of the year.  One day in late January, J. C. called me and said he had the scions for me (he brought me 4 pieces).  Here is where the story takes on an amazing detail - J. C. flew from Raleigh, NC to BC Canada JUST TO GET the 4 pieces of this ginkgo for me!  He had no other reason to go - he flew about 6000 miles round trip just to collect the ginkgo for me!  He was an amazingly generous person and I'm very thankful to have been his friend.  He is greatly missed!  So back to the ginkgo - it isn't nearly as weeping here as it was in Canada - more horizontal than weeping - its more of a curiosity than a spectacular plant, but it is one of my most prized plants in the garden because of its connection with J. C.  Only 4 plants available and they belong in gardens with strong J. C. Raulston ties.  Thanks J. C.!!!
