It is a great tree for an accent in your landscape. First of all the distinctive fan shaped leaves are so cool. It is super hardy (zone 3) and very tolerant of typical urban soil conditions and pollution. For centuries, leaves of the Ginkgo biloba are used as an herb in traditional Chinese medicine as a remedy for respiratory conditions, cognitive impairment, and circulatory disorders. In North America, it is most commonly used to improve cognitive function and memory in people with age-related cognitive decline and memory loss. Fall bonus: The leaves have a vibrant golden fall color and they usually all drop in one day! [/row]
