Ginkgo National Tree of China


The Ginkgo has long been under national protection and is now about to become the national tree of China. According to a nationwide public opinion poll conducted by the Chinese Society of Forestry through mail and Internet voting, 1.77 million of the 1.79 million people, nearly 99 per cent, chose the Ginkgo, "world's No. 1 living fossil", the "Giant Panda of Plantae". The final decision will be made after the National People's Congress reviews the result.

Gilbert & George Ginkgo Pictures

Last September I visited the Venice Biennale in Venice, Italy, and took photos of the Ginkgo Pictures by Gilbert & George, some are below .















Gilbert & George, feted among Britain's best-known contemporary artists, represented Britain at the 51st Venice Biennale of International Art 2005 and presented for their exhibition in the British Pavilion: GINKGO PICTURES. Why Ginkgo? G&G: "It represents something bigger, like the sun and the moon." New York Times: "The Tate in London bought "Fates," the show's centerpiece, for more than $350,000. Using sophisticated digital editing techniques, the artists have created a series of pictures, each of which contains the leaves of a Ginkgo tree, the symbol of life. They are posterlike works that include photo realist images of the artists themselves in a variety of poses making a variety of faces."

I have collected many seeds and cleaned them.. I put them in the vegetable drawer of my fridge in a sealed container with some slightly moistened peat moss. Early spring I let them germinate, I have many seedlings already from previous years, but I only have a rather small garden....

Ginkgo tree

Post your question and/or comment about the Ginkgo tree.
Here in the Netherlands where I live winter is getting near and the Ginkgos here are showing their beautiful golden leaves. There's a big difference though between individual trees, some are still green, others are yellowing or are completely yellow or even lost their leaves. A beautiful time to make photos!
