GInkgo biloba Tree. Started from seed approx 1996. 11.4.14
This is my favorite time of leaf color change for ginkgo. When there is green and yellow in each leaf. The yellow coloration starts at the outer margin, and works its way proximally to the stem.
My dad gave me the seed for this tree in about 1996 or 1997. I started it in a flower pot when I lived in Chicago, and brought it to Vancouver WA in 2000.
