Details

Looking for a different annual to add some pazazz to your garden? 'Fireworks' gomphrena is a tough, low-maintenance plant with long-lasting, intense iridescent pink blossoms tipped in gold that together resemble exploding fireworks. This cultivar grows quickly to form a full, dense basal clump of leaves 2-3 feet or more across, then produces numerous long, sturdy but thin, upright flower stems 2 to 4 feet tall with just a few narrow leaves along those stems (reminiscent of Verbena bonariensis, all stems and flowers with little foliage). A sure-fire winner in the landscape.
