Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo still in full autumn foliage in early June in Wagga Wagga Botanical Gardens

A tall growing deciduous tree with maidenhair like foliage. The foliage colours golden yellow in Autumn. The female tree bears a plum-like cone with an ill smelling flesh, but the kernel is edible and sweet. Slow growing and requires good soil and plenty of water during summer. We are not able to determine which seedlings are male or female until they flower so that is why we recommend 3 plants to be assured you will get at list one female.
Other Names: Maidenhair Tree

I grew a dozen Gingkos from seed - it's a business, and five died, but the remaining seven are doing very well.  It will be some years before I can put these in the ground.  This tree is very slow growing, but so beautiful and worth the wait.

I love the delicate leaves of this dinosaur tree. Don't like the looks of its bare branches in winter though.
