About 'Fireworks' Clematis:

'Fireworks' Clematis has iridescent electric pink-purple blooms with a pink strip and wavy edges. And you get double value for your money, because this clematis flowers twice: first in early summer and again in autumn.

It can be container grown, so it's a great choice for small gardens or courtyards. With modest growth and bold splash of colour it is well suited as an accent plant. They provide abundant nectar and attract bees, butterflies and lacewings.

Great for your garden:

'Fireworks' will be happiest in alkaline or neutral soil. It will do well in anything from full sun to full shade, and has the best colour in partial shade: midday sun in particular tends to fade the flowers. It grows to about 2m and can be container grown, making it a great choice for small areas such as town or courtyard gardens

The spectacular blooms make this great for drawing the eye to the end of the garden or towards any feature you want to highlight. It looks great along a wall, up a post or fence, or through small trees and shrubs. In addition to this, it attracts a great variety of wildlife.

'Fireworks' appreciates feeding between flowering seasons and soil should be kept moist - shade the base with other low growing plants or mulch if container grown. Prune in spring and after first flowering.

Look out for:

Clematis slime flux. It's an uncommon bacterial infection but can be fatal. It happens when the plant has an injury and bacteria infect the wound. Signs include wilting and yellowing of the leaves, as well as the unpleasant slime in the stems where the plant is affected.

Earwigs, aphids, and fungal infections can also affect Clematis. Mice also may want to nibble tender shoots

Note: Like all clematis, this is poisonous. The sap can irritate the skin if handled so wearing gloves would be a sensible precaution.


Fireworks was raised by in the early 1980's John Treasure, an architect who developed his passion for gardening after purchasing Burford House in Worcestershire in the fifties. He went on to become a leading Clematis breeder. The parents are Maureen and Nelly Moser.
