Common name: Maidenhair tree, ginkgo, gingko
Ginkgo biloba dates back nearly 300 million years. Ginkgo comes from a Japanese word for 'silver apricot,' and biloba refers to the dual-lobed leaf. Its leaves turn a beautiful gold colour in the fall and often drop all at once.
It is used to improve circulation to the brain and has been found to aid dementia patients.
