Pinus heldreichii 'Malink' (Bosnian Pine) is a densely branched evergreen conifer of conical habit adorned with a lush foliage of lustrous, stiff, upright, rich green needles. It is a slow growing, dwarf Bosnian Pine.
Pinus heldreichii 'Malink' is an upright, pyramidal, dwarf selection of Bosnian pine with dense branching and attractive, dark-green needles. After 10 years of growth, a mature specimen will measure 4 feet (1.3 m) tall and 20 inches (50 cm) wide, an annual growth rate of 4 to 6 inches (10 - 15 cm). This cultivar originated as a seedling selected in the late 1980s by Tånum Planteskole, Randers, Denmark; and introduced to the nursery trade in the mid-1990s by Werner Wüstemeyer's nursery in Recklinghausen, Germany. Occasionally, one may see this conifer incorrectly listed under the Latinized cultivar name, 'Malinki' or 'Malinkii.' The species name honors Theodor von Heldreich. Heldreich first found it in the mountains of northern Greece on July 31, 1851.
