Description

The deciduous Ginkgo Biloba can definitely be called a living fossil, as it is the last still occurring representative of the Ginkgoaceae that have already existed 290 million ago. Ginkgo Biloba is indigenous in Japan and China and can reach heights up to 30 m.

While young trees grow upright and are very slender, older trees grow loosely branched and very expansive. Its attractiveness is especially prominent when grown individually as an optical highlight with a breath taking long-distance effect.

With its beautiful leaves the ginkgo tree possesses a phenomenal appearance and is equally as impressive as many other beautiful blossoms no matter how attractive they may be. Many myths and legends surround this ancient and fascinating plant. Its initially green, fan-shaped leaves take on a brilliant yellow colour in autumn. All of these characteristics make the gingko tree an unusual and exceptionally decorative eye-catcher in the garden.
