Some consider that Ginkgo biloba 'Baldii'  originated in the U.S.A. Others state that Ginkgo biloba 'Baldii' originated from the Nursery of  Miroslav Malik in the Czech Republic. In Derek Spicer’s book The Encyclopaedia of Conifers 2012, he states ‘Cultivated in Germany before 2009’. We have been informed by Wolfgang Korfmacher that “Ginkgo biloba ‘Baldi’ did not originate in the nursery of Miroslav Malik, but a selection of the company Balke, Saxony, Germany which was put on the market in 2009 by the company Dittersdorf. The Cultivar name is composed of Bal and Di, the initial letters of the two companies involved” Our thanks to Wolfgang for putting the record straight.

This is a pleasing dwarf conifer, on which I first obtained for the National Collection of Ginkgo biloba and Cultivars as a ‘top worked’ plant. It is a useful garden plant because of its dwarf nature and is particularly suited to container growing.

Description - Ginkgo biloba 'Baldii’. The foliage is blue green as it emerges, turning grey green with age and then in the autumn a brilliant golden yellow. This male from is compact growing 10cm to 30cm a year forming a loose sphere. Height and spread has been suggested to be eventually 2m to 3m.
