Fall Gold Ginkgo

We now have Fall Gold Ginkgo leaves! This is my favorite form of Ginkgo, which is grown in the US and harvested while the leaves display their yellow & gold fall color. Usually when you purchase Ginkgo, it is grown in Asia and harvested during the summer when the leaves are green. It is thought that the gold leaves picked at the height of Autumn contain more medicinal properties than the green leaves.

The attractive, edible leaves come in many leaf variegation patterns with flower colors varying from dark blue to sky blue, white and pink-crimson.

The use of Lungwort goes back many centuries as many people believed solely in the Doctrine of Signatures which is a theory that anything resembling a body part means that it is beneficial to that area in the body.
