This is a very slow growing and long lived, deciduous tree with a large and elegant habit. Considered quite an ancient tree, it is known to have origins dating back to Jurassic times and is often referred to as a living fossil. Specimens exist in it's native origin, China which are estimated to be over 1000 years old. It has unique, double lobed, fan shaped leaves with veins which spread from the stalk of the leaf. Short catkins are produced, followed by yellow fruit and the foliage is a rich green, which turns a golden yellow in autumn. The leaves can be used in teas and are known to have a number of health benefits.
