The Q&A Archives: Fast Flowering Plants

Question: Can you please tell me how long it takes for California blue bells, California poppy, Canterbury bells, cleome , Iceland poppies, and impatiens to flower?

Answer: Campanulas bloom the second year (some are biennial, some perennial); cleome and California poppy take about 90 days, Iceland poppies about four months and impatiens about ten or twelve weeks. California Blue Bells (Nemophila menziesii) is an early, cool season wild flower that dies away when it gets hot, so I would place it at about 90 days or less.
