Taishan is better dwarf African marigold, with full plants and season long shows of high impact colour! Performance is so spectacular that the series was featured in landscapes at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing China. With 20% shorter peduncles and 15% thicker stems than the market leader,Taishan stands tall with less stretch on the bench, and less breakage in shipping and at retail. Better branching with more aggressive side branching fills packs quickly and delivers a healthier look. Large flower hold their doubleness and shed water well. Big, tightly petaled blooms on super–strong stems look terrific at retail with less waste, better overhead watering tolerance and longer shelf life.
