I heard of a flower that blossoms during the day or at the sight of sunlight and folds in during the night.

If there is a such flower, could you please provide the name of it and also information on where to purchase such a flower?

Many flowers open during the day and close at night. Some of the more commonly grown include California poppy (Eschscholzia californica), morning glory (Convolvulus), gazania, and English daisy (Bellis perennis). There are many more - moonflower(Ipomea), evening primrose (oenothera), and datura. You can purchase seed through the Burpee catalog (or online at Enjoy your moon garden!
