Taiwan is endowed with sufficient sunshine and appropriate climate. Besides, the extraordinary flower cultivation and the cultivation techniques of flower varieties help the prosperous development of Taiwan's floral industry, as well as having a high reputation internationally.
The cultivation areas of flowers are more than 14,000 hectares and the output value reaches NTD18.2 billion per year. The main cities and counties of flower planting include Changhua, Nantou, Taichung, Pingtung, Chiayi and Tainan, where flowering ornamental plants, foliage plants, ornamental fruit plants, bedding plants and nursery plants are cultivated.
