Ginka is native to China, but it is now grown in France and South Carolina also. It grows slowly, and it is very sturdy. This tree can grow to a height of 50 to 120 feet. Its trunk is light green and textured, the male tree hosts broad grooves in its bark, while the female tree has much sharper markings. The leaves are leathery and turn golden yellow in the fall. The tree doesn’t flower until it’s between 20 and 30 years old. The ancient Chinese used this plant to improve circulation.
