If Tokyo has made the Gingko its emblem, it is for its symbol of longevity.
The oldest known tree species, the Ginkgo has conquered the mountains of South East China where its name translates as "silver apricot tree". Indissociable from Chinese medicine or its delicacies, it is also a tree of hope, offered as a sign of love. In autumn, its golden yellow hues give it the name of the thousand-coin tree.
The colour of the flowers will change naturally over time, which is what makes real herbaria so charming and poetic.
