Celebrating ROC Centennial with Creative Art of Flowers

To celebrate the centennial of the Republic of China, the COA noted that the Taiwan Flower Show specially displays many creative floral works for the first time in the country. Located at the entrance to Area A is “Avenue of Stars” created by more than 10,000 Oncidium and other orchids, and the largest in Taiwan as well as the first in the world “Rich and Lucky 101”bamboo sculpture, which transforms plain lucky bamboo into a miniaturized version of the towering Taipei 101 building, there represents the finale work of the Taipei Flora Expo. In addition, there is the “Blue and White Porcelain Garden Landscape Show” created by numerous Chrysanthemum for the first time. Major floral art groups in the country are also invited to take part in the on-site “Blossoming” floral art contest and all competing works, whether winning prizes or not, are classic. Elite domestic landscape gardening teams jointly created classic picture of rural charm in Area B by displaying rarely seen new species and restored rare native plants.

Taiwan Floriculture Industry Accumulates Rich Energy in Many Years

The Council pointed out that the Taiwan floriculture industry has accumulated rich energy under the joint efforts of the industry, government and academia. Whether it’s orchids or cut flowers, the industry’s strength can not be ignored. Flower cultivation in Taiwan covered an area of 13,165 hectares in 2010, with an annual production of 86,548 dozens of cut flowers, 66.18 million pots of orchid and an annual output value of some NT$13.2 billion. The export value of Taiwan flowers grew nearly three times from 2001 to 2010. Taiwan ’s flower exports totaled US$149 million (some NT$4.7 billion) in 2010, making floriculture an industry with enormous potential for export. The success is attributed mainly to the outstanding R&D achievements of flower farmers and agricultural research units in the field of breeding, cultivation and post-harvest treatment techniques.
