Ginkgo Biloba - Maidenhair Tree

Ginkgo biloba is the world's oldest living tree, a species whose existence can be traced back-over 250 million years! For this reason, the Ginkgo was referred to as living fossil (1859) by Charles Darwin.
It appeared at Carboniferous. During the Jurassic period, Ginkgo trees were common and widespread in Asia, Europe and America.
Ginkgo survived many crises, in particular at the end of the cretaceous where the dinosaurs disappeared.
Ginkgos disappeared from America about 7 million years ago, and from Europe about 3 million years ago.

The last survivor Ginkgos have taken refuge in the south-east of China. The buddhist monks venerated it, and undoubtedly them its survival is owed. Regarded as a guard to entreat fire, it was planted near the pagodas, in the imperial gardens in China. The Ginkgo wood crowned the temples.

Known as the Maidenhair Tree because it's foliage closely resembles the Maidenhair Fern

Excellent Autumn colour.

Ginkgo has been much used in traditional Chinese medicine. Toward the end of the 20th century, ginkgo extract became popular in many countries for its purported memory-enhancing properties, and the chemical constituents of the plant are under investigation as a possible treatment for Alzheimer disease.

Excellent choice for small gardens, courtyards & front gardens. Height 30-40ft eventually, but with an open structure allowing lots of light in
