In Ufa, the first in Bashkiria flower clock, which diameter makes five metres appeared near the Salavat Yulaev Square. The length of clock hands reaches almost three metres, the deputy chief of technological department of Ufa "Gorzelenkhoz" Radik Gilyazov informs.
— Approximately 1500 petunias of several colours were used to make a clock-face of the first flower clock in Ufa. Plants should not close clock hands, therefore we chose unpretentious, bloomy for a long time, shortgrowing petunia, —Radik Gilyazov explained.
As he said, you can verify exact time by the flower clock. The mechanism of the clock is moisture-proof so it is not afraid of any watering and rains.
For the winter the clock will be dismantled, and with arrival of spring it will take again the place on the slope in front of the Salavat Yulaev Square.
