Meet the better dwarf African marigold. 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 fills packs quickly and delivers a healthier look. Larger flowers hold their doubleness and shed water well. At retail, the big, tightly petaled blooms on super-strong stems look terrific with less waste, better tolerance of overhead watering and longer shelf life. Gardeners and landscapers will appreciate the full plants and season-long shows of high-impact color. Performance is so spectacular that the Taishan series was featured throughout the landscapes at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, China.
