A Botanical Timekeeper - The Flower Clock

A Botanical Timekeeper - The Flower Clock

Geneva’s often imitated but never equalled Flower Clock is a renewable living masterpiece.
It lies a few steps away from the lake and is one of Switzerland’s most photographed sites. The clock features the world’s longest seconds-hand.

The clock, situated at a corner of the Jardin Anglais, was created for the first time in 1955 and contains about 6,500 flowers and plants. The floral arrangements change according to the season. The flower clock is not only pretty, it also tells the time with Swiss precision - the time you see is transmitted by satellite. Another important detail - the seconds-hand is 2.5 metres long, the world’s longest!
