There are some kinds of peach blossom, including “dao bich” – strong-red peach blossom, “dao phai” – light-red peach blossom or “dao ta” – fruit-tree peach blossom. Both “dao bich” and “dao phai” were originally from Mong Tu – China. Their flowers are in shape of sphere and double-petal. “Dao ta” (originally from Vietnam) has thin single petal, light red colour, thin and sparse branches. This kind of flower has been well preferred in recent years.
