Ginkgo biloba L. TEXT SIZE: A A A

 

Ginkgo biloba

The Ginkgo tree is thought to come originally from China and it is used in many herbal remedies to treat bad memory. It's called a living fossil because fossils of ginco leaves are quite common.

The Ginco tree usually grows 20-30m high with some specimens in China being as high as 50m with leaves 5-10cm long.
