Ginkgo biloba ‘Queen City’ is a Ginkgo cultivar trademarked by Byron Baxter. It was found as a broom growing on a tree in a work area outside the formally plotted numbered sections of Spring Grove Cemetery, 4521 Spring Grove Ave, Cincinnati, Ohio, in The United Sates of America by Bill Barger. Byron considers Ginkgo biloba ‘Queen City’ as the best of the litter of Spring Grove Cemetery brooms. He named it ‘Queen City’ as Cincinnati is known as The Queen City. Some sources suggest that it may be the same plant as Ginkgo biloba ‘Spring Grove #22’ but it is not!
Description - Ginkgo biloba 'Queen City' has interesting foliage because they form almost a complete circle around the petiole, having several distinct lobes being predominantly dark green in colour. It is a dwarf cultivar with a tight irregular upright habit. Height 3 - 4 m in 10 years. It has good autumn colour in most years.
