( Autumn Gold Maidenhair Tree )
|This prehistoric plant is an upright, columnar, then spreading, deciduous tree with grey bark. Fan shaped leaves are medium green to yellow green and taper into stems, usually lobed at the edges. On females, 3 inch yellow flowers are borne in clusters, followed by a fleshy, plum like fruit which stink when ripe.
These beautiful trees are extinct in the wild, but luckily are becoming increasingly popular in cultivation, possibly this is due to the trees use in herbology. Very slow growing, but long lived.
Important Info : Select male plants or named fruitless varieties such as 'Autumn Gold', 'Fairmont', and 'Santa Cruz'.
