Native to China, exported to the world as an ornamental street tree.
Its common English name is the maidenhair tree.
Has fan-shaped leaves that turn colors from light green in the spring to yellow in autumn.
Their seeds stink pretty bad when they start to rot on the ground.
Despite the stench, the seed is a delicacy in some countries.
The tree is the only living representative of its family and order, thus the tree is said to be a "living fossil."
