Main asset

Ginkgo biloba is the only species still alive today of the genus Ginkgo, widespread in the Permian era (-270 million years). It was saved from extinction thanks to its protection around Buddhist temples in East China.
Very strong species (having survived to the atomic bomb in Hiroshima !), well suited for urban planting, resistant to pollution, diseases and pests. Naturally pyramidal shape. Beautiful gold autumn foliage.


Male clone (no smelly ovules !) grafted on Ginkgo from seedling, sold 1 year after grafting.

The Ginkgo biloba 'Blagon', selected by Jacques DERLY in his nursery near Bordeaux, has a natural pyramidal shape, visible in the left photos, taken in our mother plants crop and at the entrance of the Ecole Supérieure d'Agriculture of Angers (France).
