Ginkgo biloba

Ginkgo biloba 

Beautiful deciduous tree, the only species in its genus. Foliage is a beautiful blue-green and are shaped like those of a maidenhair fern (hence sometimes reffered to as a maidenhair tree). Unique leaves turn bright yellow in fall. Look for male only varieites to avoid messy, foul-smelling fruit. Currently being trialed with moderate success in more temperate regions of Montana, protected places.
