Ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)

Also known as Maidenhair Tree, Ginkgo grew over most of the Earth some 200 million years ago at the time dinosaurs roamed. The oldest surviving broadleaf tree, they are beautiful in the landscape at all times of year with bright green fan shaped foliage that turns a luminescent gold in fall and has a stately winter branch pattern. Ginkgo"s are slow and steady growers eventually reaching 35-70 feet tall. They are tolerant of difficult soils and air pollution, making them popular as a city street tree. The edible nuts are about 1 inch long and are highly esteemed in Asia where they are roasted or boiled. Trees are either male or female and both are needed to harvest fruit. The fruit surrounding the nuts can have a strong rancid odor if not harvested and left on ground to rot, so don"t plant a female tree next to the house if not planning to harvest the nuts. The leaves and nuts are both used as an herbal medicine to strengthen the memory. We sell both un-sexed seedlings and grafted male and female varieties. Zones 4-9.
