Garden Clock question

Can any one of the flower gardeners in this group provide the name of a plant(s) whose flower opens at 2 or 3 pm in the afternoon? Also when it closes if you know. I'm trying to finish this hypothetical garden clock for our garden club newsletter and I can't come up with a flower that opens between 1 and 4 pm. Thanks for any assistance.
Morning Glory, Ipomoea purpurea. Opens at dawn. A funnel-shaped flower grown on a vine. It blooms from July to October and can grow to be 10' in length.
Dandelion, Taraxacum officinale. Opens at 7 or 8 a.m. A small yellow flower that is common in every lawn. It blooms from March to September and is 2" to 18" tall.
Blue Pimpernel, Anagallis monellii. Opens at 9 or 10 a.m. A long-blooming annual with stunning, electric-blue flowers. It blooms non-stop from mid summer to late fall and is 8-16" tall.
California Poppy, Escholtzia californica. Opens at 11 a.m. A brightly-colored, four petal flower. It blooms May to September and grows 8" to 12" tall.
Meadow Salsify, Tragopogon pratensis. Opens at 12 p.m. A bright yellow flower on a long stalk, often mistaken for a dandelion. It blooms from June to October and can grow to be 1' to 3' tall.
Rock Pink, Talinum calycinum has several common names including Fame Flower and Flower-of-an-hour. Opens at 1 p.m. A profusion of large 1" rose-pink flowers appear to float above the ground on wiry wispy 12" stems from May to September.
Some flower that open at 2 or 3 pm?
Four O'Clock, Mirabilis jalapa. Opens at 4 p.m. A common garden plant with yellow, red, white or mottled flowers on long vines. It blooms from May to September and grows to be about 3' in length.
Evening Primrose, Oenothera biennis. Opens at 6 p.m. A lemon-scented, large, yellow flower on a hairy stem. It blooms from June to September and grows to be 2' to 5' tall.

Thanks for the site Tracy. But . . . They are mistaken. Chicory opens up in the morning not 2 pm. I think they are wrong about Scarlet Pimpernel, Dandelion, Morning Glory and Calif. Poppy too. I understand that flowers open up at different times in different parts of the country. But I can't see Chicory opening up five hours later than it does in zone 6. Thank you.
