Known as that maidenhair tree due to it's fan shaped leaves, the Ginkgo biloba has been around as long as the dinosaurs! Said to be a living fossil, it is believed to be at least 150 million years old. While the lush leaves are a rich green color during the warmer season, they turn into luminous golden-yellow autumn. Though Ginkgos are dioecious (separate male and female trees), the female tree produces a foul smelling fruit which is undesirable for most gardeners.
