Grower Information

Supplied as de-tailed and coated seed. 

  • 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.
