The Birth of a Brand for the Primary Source of Taiwan's Landscape Azalea Seedlings.
Wanli and Jinshan districts in New Taipei City are Taiwan's azalea seedling hubs, supplying 80% of the country’s stock with a leading 300+ varieties. Since 2021, the city’s Agriculture Department has been promoting the "Wanjin Azalea" brand, aiming to make it a flagship industry for the region.
The "Mobile Flower Cluster" special exhibition at the Wanjin Azalea Flower Show continues the excellent reputation of the 2022 "Flower Cluster" exhibition. The theme for the 2023 Wanjin Azalea Flower Show is "Mobile Flower Cluster," which incorporates symbols of the local community's six decades of toil such as agricultural vehicles and fishing boats. Unique mobile azalea flower carts and boats are created to bring the beautiful memories of flower gatherings 'to life.' The exhibition also broadly invites artists from various fields and local flower farmers to collaborate and create diverse, integrated, and creative azalea artworks, together building an annual carnival.

International Graffiti Artists from the Netherlands and Spain: FLEKS & ORBITA
International graffiti artists FLEKS and ORBITA have adorned Wanjin with their azalea graffiti, with works scattered throughout the area. In 2023, we are collaborating with these artists once again to unleash their creativity along the Azalea Viewing Path in the exhibition area. They will transform azalea petals into guiding blossoms, connecting the vibrant azalea scenery along the banks of the Maruo Creek. This collaboration aims to make the Wanjin Azaleas feel both more local and more international.

Bilateral Collaboration | Advancing to Taipei Azalea Season
With the highly mobile ( Flower car ) concept, the cherished Flower Cluster from 2022 is set in motion, bringing the flower exhibition area to life along the Maruo Creek, the source river in Wanli, with Wanjin Azaleas' spring colors enhancing the creekside.
With over 100,000 visitors and great reviews, the exhibit was invited to Daan Forest Park for the Taipei Azalea Festival, embodying a "Mobile Flower Cluster."
To relocate the exhibition area to Daan, artists also adapted their works to the environment, presenting a different look. In terms of azalea species selection, Daan
Forest Park mainly showcased the "Rhododendron indicum," differing from the "Rhododendron pulchrum" at the Wanli exhibition area.
To allow the public to enjoy flower exhibitions of different styles and varieties, Wanjin Azaleas advanced to Daan with full sincerity!
Designers and flower farmers together realize "Mobile Flower Cluster," moving the exhibits forward to Daan.
