  • Best dwarf African Marigold for landscapes – 20% shorter peduncles and 15% thicker stems assure less stretch and breakage.
  • Big, tightly petaled blooms on super-strong stems look terrific at retail with less waste, better overhead watering tolerance and longer shelf life.
  • Better branching with more aggressive side branching fills packs quickly and delivers a healthier look.
  • Larger flowers hold their doubleness and shed water well.
  • Performance is so spectacular that Taishan was featured in landscapes at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
