Increases blood circulation to the brain. Very slow to break dormancy in spring. Very slow growing. I've never heard anyone ever refer to this as a 'maidenhair tree' - could be a regional thing I suppose. It's always just been a gingko.

This tree holds its leaves long into the fall and are a beautiful clear yellow.
Ginkgo trees are slow growers and can be male or female.
The ripe fruit of the female tree smells very bad, like vomit.
