A large, very adaptable shade tree with unique fan-shaped
Each tree has only one kind of flower -- pollen bearing "male"
flowers or fruit-producing "female" blooms.
Male plants are preferred because the female's fruit is messy
underfoot and malodorous.
Ginkgo is often used as street tree because of its
site-adaptability and salt tolerance.
It's faster growing than many people expect, growing as much as
18" per year until it matures and begins to flower (trees of either
sex) and bear fruit (the female trees).
Short but sweet describes the ginkgo (Ginkgo biloba)
fall color. It often turns gold overnight and then drops every leaf
over the course of the following day.
