Maidenhair Tree (Ginkgo Biloba) Thompson & Morgan£3.99
Known as a ‘living fossil’ the Ginkgo Biloba, also known as Maidenhair Tree, is one of the sole survivors of an ancient group of trees that date back to beyond the time of the dinosaurs. Remaining virtually unchanged, the Maidenhair Tree is named this because the leaves resemble that of the native Maidenhair Fern. They are the bridge between ‘higher’ and ‘lower’ plants such as ferns and conifers.
Growing to an eventual height of up to 40m tall, the bark is grey, furrowed and corky holding fan shaped leaves that span up to 12cm across. The leaves are divided into two lobes, and are bright yellow in autumn that are spirally arranged on long shoots. The tree has either male or female flowers; the male flowers are large, catkin-like and yellow, hanging up to 8cm long whereas the female flowers are smaller and on pedicels up to 4cm long. They will also produce fruit that resemble a plum in appearance. Suited to moist, deep and sandy soils, position in full sunlight and your Ginkgo Tree will thrive. However they are extremely adaptable and will survive in a lot of stressful conditions.
Banana Chinese Yellow (Musa Lasiocarpa) Thompson & Morgan£4.99
Once thought to be extinct, the Musa Lasiocarpa also known as the ‘Chinese Yellow Banana’ is a handsome banana that is found growing in remote regions of the Himalayas in South East China. This hardy perennial will produce huge paddle shaped leaves in bright green, and the mature plant will feature long-lasting summer flowers. Clump-forming, the original plant will die back as the flower develops but they will then produce off shoots and will continue to grow and thrive.
Winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit this striking plant will grow to a height of up to 200cm, and spread to 75cm, making them a true spectacle within your garden. During the cold winter months the foliage will brown off but if you protect the roots the plant will bounce back and continue to grow as the temperatures rise.
Plant in a position with full sun to partial shade, and fertile, moist but well-drained soil your Chinese Yellow banana plant will thrive.
