The Q&A Archives: Fast Flowers

Question: I want to buy some flower seeds for my class. Which flower is the fastest growing? Example: Radishes grow so quickly, you can see it sprouting within a few days. But this time I want flowers.

Thanks in advance

Answer: If you are planting the seeds now, you might try zinnia or cosmos for relatively fast germination. Keep in mind though that it will take two months or so to see any flowers. If you have very young children, sunflowers have large, easy to handle seeds, grow like mad once they sprout, and are sturdy plants if you need to transplant them. Good luck with your project!
