Fast Growing Rebloomer
Clematis Fireworks explodes into color with beautiful 8" bluish purple flowers with glowing cerise central bars. The petals have a slight twist to them and are slightly recurved at the tips. There are a profusion of white spikes in the center of each flower.
This Clematis Fireworks will rebloom again in late summer with smaller 6" flowers.An outstanding variety with a vigorous growth habit, this clematis is best grown in a protected area to prevent wind damage to the very large flowers. ‘Fireworks’ was Awarded Royal Horticultural Society's Award of Merit.
Clematis Fireworks needs a supporting structure to grow properly but will also grow over large shrubs, over walls, cover stumps, and make perfect cover ups for unsightly service areas.
Clematis is easy to grow in a rich, porous, alkaline soil with plenty of room for the roots to spread. Best performance for the Clematis Fireworks is when the tops are in full sunlight and the roots are shaded, so apply generous mulch or a shallow-rooted ground cover near the base of the vine.
Groom this plant after first flowering by cutting back the top one-third to one-half of some stems. Clematis Fireworks is a very reliable performer once established; it takes a season or two to get going!
