The species Ginkgo biloba is the best known form of this ancient family of trees.

The fissured bark is also a feature.

Gingkos grow with a columnar habit, with branches emerging at right angles.  In good conditions the tree should reach a height of about 6m in the longer term.

Ginkgos have been used in traditional medicines for many years, with numerous claimed health benefits, but also many questionable side effects.
