I don’t see many Gingko Biloba. Especially not locally. Show it if you got it!

I love this topic :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: thanks for bringing it up @MrJesseStrong
This tree is on my list to have however they are very rare indeed. They are plenty in my area (not in pots tho) and one in front of the house I live in - at least my eyes are getting great satisfaction from looking at them often :wink:
I just recently read about Ginkgo Biloba and happy to share with you a bit that made me being even more fascinated by this gorgeous tree:
‘‘The Ginkgos were the first seed plants that were capable of extensive secondary thickening. They were therefore the first to resemble what we now think of as a ‘typical’ tree; they had a tall, tapering trunk, and a complex, branching crown. The Ginkgos also had more modern-looking fan-shaped leaves. Like cycads, they achieved their greatest diversity during the Jurassic period, when they had a worldwide distribution. They have since declined, and now just one species, Ginkgo Biloba, remains.’’
Apologies for text only but like I mentioned, this tree is on my list of ‘wish to have’ only. Hope the article made all owners a bit prouder about what they have in their collection so go on! Pictures please :slight_smile:

Fantastic! Love its gnarly trunk. What’s the age on this guy?

I just saw a photo of your tree shown here on an Instagram account called @bonsai_vilas I don’t know if you know them or not but I thought I’d let you know either way.

Love the tree, it looks great in this pot.

Nice.
Your stand is a little large, but your background contrast is awesome.
Is that a Forsythia to the left?
