Help with a plant that grows Fast*

Hey everyone! Need help finding a plant to grow from seed that generally grows fast. I am out of my zone here because I usually grow tropical plants that grow relatively slow. So what plant can I sow and see some growth out of in 8-9 weeks.

Marigolds and cosmos to start. But different varieties have different performance characteristics. See below.
On second thought, what do you want this plant to accomplish?

Here is a link that might be useful: Marigolds

If you want to grow something fast in Zone 7 wait till Spring, March at the earliest. Sow too early and not only will it not grow fast it may not grow at all!
