A Speed Flower is a type of flower found in Super Paper Mario. If one of the four heroes (Mario, Luigi, Bowser, Princess Peach) pick it up, everything will speed up for a short period of time. Within that time, points and coins the heroes would earn will be tripled.
The Slow Flower is the blue-colored opposite of the Speed Flower, and makes everything go slower.
