  • Chrysanthemum – Chrysanthemum is like the peony characterized by a spherical break. The only difference is its visible tail effect.
    • Willow – The willow is similar to the chrysanthemum. The only difference is that it presents lesser ongoing flare after it is ignited. You will notice that the flames will slowly extinguish which forms a willow branch.
    • Ground Bloom Flower – The ground bloom flower is an effect that is designed to give an ongoing thrust. The thrust will give a spin that will give an effect of sparks in all angles. The spin will change the flame’s colour. You will know it is the end if its flames are orange.
    • Dahlia – Dahlia is similar to the peony. The only difference is that dahlia offers larger but fewer starts. The stars from dahlia travel longer before it will burn it.
    • Palm – If you see a display that presents large comet bursting in large tendrils, you are seeing the palm effect. If you light it, you will see a tail that ascends forming a palm trunk.131003145250-seoul-fireworks-festival-8-horizontal-gallery
