  1. I didn't know they grew outside Japan until I saw photos of them in places in the states.  You are right, +Laura Ockel , the leaves do indeed resemble fans.  In fact, we have one here on our entrance way table that I brought back from our last visit to Tokyo!

  2. LOL, sorry,  I meant I have a leaf from a Japanese ginko 😀

    I've never had luck with bonsai. My one attempt was a flowering sakura, which grew to a regular sized tree and bore fruit!  But your mention of bonsai reminds me of the amazing ones we saw during a visit to Japan.  Some were hundreds of years old.  Unfortunately, cameras were not allowed.  🙁
