Pruning a young outdoor ginkgo tree into bonsia

Posted: 10/08/2017 at 14:55

Not strictly bonsai with their roots in the ground but I saw one pruned as a shrub in a garden I visited and I'm trying to do that to mine. It was given to me years ago, already hacked about so no future as a tree. It's not very wonderful to look at so far. 

Identify Please

I think those bright colours are for creators of outdoor rooms (or whatever the 'in' term is), not for serious gardeners. Nothing wrong with it if that's what you like.

Can you help identify ?
