Vermillionaire Firecracker Plant has abundant yellow-orange flowers all season long. It attracts hummingbirds and is heat and drought-tolerant. Deadheading is not necessary for continued bloom.

Plant Powered Packaging by Proven Winners®: Introducing the full annual Eco+Grande collection! The Eco+Grande is a game changing Plant Container made from plants!  This compostable container is made from starchy renewable plants like corn, switch grass and sugar beets grown in the United States. The Eco+Grande has nutrients built into the wall of the container that helps plants grow bigger and faster all season, if planted in the ground. When the Proven Winners Eco+Grande container is discarded in the garbage can, it will naturally break down faster in a landfill than a traditional petroleum made container. The container will get smaller and smaller until microbes consume it, turning it back into an inert organic product.

  • 18-28 inches tall and 12-24 inches wide at maturity
  • Annual except in zones 8-11
  • Plant in full sun (6+ hours daily)

Fertilize weekly with Proven Winners Water Soluble Plant Food.

Fabulous Firecracker!

This purchase was my first with Proven Winners Direct. The plants arrived swiftly and were packaged with care. The added bonus of pots that were the nutrients has been a great success! My plants are lush and the best looking of anything I planted on my patio this season, which is a miracle given our extreme temperatures this summer. Even the guys that have been out back have complimented the plants.

Love my large firecrackers

Delivery was perfect! They came so quickly. They were perfect and looked just like the photo !I was able to transplant them right away. They immediately had hummingbirds visits daily and are still super healthy! I will be ordering them when I return to NY in June !
