I was given a flower last year,, and the giver did not know the name of it. I have been searching online and cannot find it.
Plant description. It looks like a very skinny dandelion. Flower pods develop over a 2 day period, once large enough, this plant flowers at dusk and not before. You can actually watch it open. You hear a slight pop and the flower slowly comes out of the pod, like time lapse photography. The flower is a beautiful yellow 4 petal flower. It stays in bloom all night and in the morning the flower has wilted.
I do not know how to put pictures on this forum so I could show you the plant.
Any help finding a name for this flower would be appreciated. Also how do you reproduce the plant? I dead head it so that new flower pods will appear, should I let the spent flower develop a seed?
