Gomphrena, Fireworks is rated out of 5 by 11.Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeyG from Fabulous - but be patient I planted from seed last spring. They were very hard to germinate. I only got a handful of plants that took forever to grow. But I set them out. They sat and sat. And then they took off! This is November 17 on Long Island. Those few plants are still blooming like crazy and completely filled about 5 square feet. At least 3 feet high. Several folks asked me what they are! I will definitely plant them again next year - but more this time. I may have started the seeds too deep. This year I will start them on top of the planting medium, or very shallow. You must try them.Date published: 2015-11-17Rated 5 out of 5 by Moppet from Gomphrena, Fireworks Came back in container I wintered in garageDate published: 2015-06-04Rated 2 out of 5 by LibraryLynn from G. Fireworks I have grown and dried gomphrenas many times, but these seeds came up and that was it - no growth. Any hints how to get them to grow? My other seeds are growing like crazy, but the gomphrena seeds still have their initial 2 tiny leaves.Date published: 2013-05-01Rated 5 out of 5 by papajo from gomphrena very easy to grow, come up every year,bloom from spring to fall, low maintenance, pretty long lasting blooms.Date published: 2012-05-09Rated 5 out of 5 by 95127 from Great plant This is a terrific variety. I co-ordinate a Master Gardener Ornamentals project with emphasis on plants that do well in Santa Clara county and are excellent as cut flowers. G. 'Fireworks' qualifies as one of the best. Non stop flowering, last very well in the garden and vase - also dry well.Date published: 2012-05-09Rated 1 out of 5 by willie1 from gomphrena my seeds never grewDate published: 2012-05-09Rated 5 out of 5 by MissyZ8a from Loves the Texas heat I planted these last year in the Spring. Then we had a severe drought and the hottest Summer on record with temps over 110 for many, many days. This plant thrived and bloomed in the hot afternoon sun! It actually made it through our mild winter and is about 1 foot tall now. I'm fencing it in this year, because it got so big last year. It is just beautiful, unusual and the butterflies like it!Date published: 2012-05-06Rated 5 out of 5 by RelaxedGardener from Fireworks Gomphrena Grew these from seed last year. Planted in full sun and off they went! Comes into its prime late summer early fall. Kept on going until mid-November. They really do look like fireworks too.Date published: 2011-12-09
