Ginkgo biloba, fall color
The giant Ginkgo biloba that graces the Systematics Garden adjacent to the Lyman Plant House, drops its leaves in a spectacular fleeting fall display.
If conditions are optimal, all of the leaves fall in a matter of hours covering the ground with a golden carpet.



The Ginkgo's leaf drop on November 18, 2009.
