Quick Growing Flowers in Florida?

So for a science project, I need to grow a flower. It needs to be quick growing and good in Florida climate. I would also like it to be pretty, and bright colored.

    No, we've not got a flower backyard. We customarily have what got here with the abode as quickly as we bought it 12 years in the past. there are a number of day lillies, yet they simply bloom interior the Spring. We even have tulips - yet another Spring flower. i admire plant existence, yet they're lots of artwork!
