<< GarlicKnown locations: fort Weyr
Uses: edible, medicinal, used for high blood pressure, as a cold remedy, used by Moreta as a palliative
<<Ging Growth form: Tree. Thick and spongy fronds.
Known location: Ista
Uses: Fronds can be used as improvised forest bedding. The fronds make handy needlethorn packages, as the sap from the cut edges of leaves forms its own glue. Leaf sap will also seal puncture wounds. In Moreta, it was stated that softnuts (which are edible) were 'on all the trees', so it could be assumed that they are ging softnuts.
Misc.: Moreta described the ging forrest in the fall as ''a green face with a thousand black-rimmed eyes.'' Needlethorn is always found in the prescience of ging trees.
<<Ginkgo (I,H)Growth form: Tree
General habitat: open plains
Uses: Colonists used Ginkgo to break ground and provide shelter for oak and pine seedlings.
Outside Info: Notched, fan-sheped leaves that turn yellow in fall. The seeds and leaves are used in Chinese medicine for lung problems. Extract from yellow leaves contains vitamins that strengthens blood vessels and reduces production of tissue-damaging 'free radicals' and tarpons (which reduce clump-forming blood platelets). It is said to improve brain efficiency and cellular energy. When ripe, the seeds give off a foul-smelling odor.
<<GlovecapUses: medicinal herb, anodyne
