The Q&A Archives: What Flowers Grow The Fastest?

Question: I was wondering what is the fastest growing flower. I need something that will grow in 3-4 weeks. I have marigolds, anything else?

Answer: Your choices are limited, as most flowers take 90-120 days, or longer, to reach bloom from seed under ideal conditions.
Marigold is a fast grower, but it can take 90 days to bloom.
Here's some with the least days to maturity. Of course, different varieties will have different days, so check seed packs and catalog descriptions.

alyssum 50-65
nasturium 90
viola, 60-70
phlox drummondii, 'Tapestry Mix' 50-65
