Take your fingers off the fuse and try lighting up your backyard with flowers instead! Yes, it’s time to get your garden groove on and plant or at least plan flowers for next season. We found one of the most unusual flowering bulbs around, it’s called the Firecracker Flower (sometimes called Dichelostemma Ida Maia)!
This northwest native puts on a delightful display that attracts butterflies and hummingbirds. Each stem can hold a dozen blooms that almost seem to be in bursts. Each flower is tubular in shape and a deep crimson color.  These flowers bloom later in the spring, after common bulbs like tulips and narcissus have faded.
This firecracker flower likes full sun and is hardy in zones 6 through 9, or even 4 with winter protections. You’ll love adding this firework flower to your collection, it will remind you of all those fun times when you’ve shot off firecrackers and poppers in the similar-looking red wrappers! A must-have for firework fans!
