Flowers that bloom fast

maxjavierJanuary 16, 2007


I'm looking for flowers that bloom fast (if that's the correct terminology). I mean the kind of flowers that open and close daily. The faster the transition, the better for this project.

I need to film a time lapse of different flowers opening. I'm sure that many of you have already seen these kind of images on TV.

Your suggestions as to which flowers experience these transformations in short periods of time will be highly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.

Eschscholzia, Ipomoea and Mirabilis are three genera that comes to mind. Also check out Linnaeus' Flower clock.

Chicorum is one in the Compositaea. (These are now called Asteraceae I believe) That might give a little variety.
