Ginkgo biloba

Information

Ginkgo 

FAMILY: GINKGOACEAE

Ginkgo biloba - Ginkgo

About Ginkgo at OSU's Landscape Plants site

  • Native to China.

  • With age can become huge in height and trunk circumference. Can live over 1,000 years.

  • Leaves are fan-shaped.

  • Males and females are usually different trees. The most primitive broad-leafed tree. Female “nut” is smelly but, after peeling and heating, is delicious.

  • Fall color is a glorious yellow; leaves fall almost all at once.

  • Rather common in Portland.

  • #187 and 188 are large females; #73 is a male.
