Best dwarf African marigold for landscapes – 20% shorter peduncles and 15% thicker stems assure less stretch and breakage.


Big, tightly petalled 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.
