While you wouldn’t want to install explosive flowers in your client’s yard, you can give them a little patriotic style with plants named after these light shows.
To celebrate the Fourth of July, here are some foliage fireworks.

plant grows to form a full, dense, landscape specimen, eventually reaching up to 3 to 4 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide. Tons of strong, tall stems are topped with exploding bursts of full, large 1-inch blooms in hot pink tipped with bright yellow. A showstopper in the garden and conversation piece when cut for a mixed bouquet.
|Fireworks Fountain Grass
colorful, upright growing grass has variegated stripes of white, green, burgundy and hot pink running the length of the blade. Purple tassles appear in summer. Plant as a specimen or in mass for a stunning display of color. A great addition to containers and beds near patios or decks.
