Flowers in the Animal Crossing series are small clusters of brightly colored flowers that live throughout all four seasons. They can be bought from Tom Nook's Store or Leif's Garden Shop, are grown by villagers, and grow randomly around the town. In Dōbutsu no Mori e+ and earlier, flowers cannot breed or wilt. All sorts of colors can be bought from Tom Nook without the need to hybridize. The Blue Cosmos is exclusive to Dōbutsu no Mori, Dōbutsu no Mori +, Animal Crossing and Dōbutsu no Mori e+ and was not available anymore in Animal Crossing: Wild World and later. Also, they cannot be picked up in Dōbutsu no Mori, Dōbutsu no Mori + or Animal Crossing unlike in later games, so they cannot be sold or worn. In Dōbutsu no Mori e+, flowers can be picked, but it will result in the flower being destroyed and the player will be holding the flower in their hands after being picked.

Flower basics

Flowers.jpg

There are four common types of flowers: roses, cosmos, tulips, and pansies. Animal Crossing: New Leaf has introduced two new flowers, lilies and violets, both in which can be either bought from Leif's Gardening Store or found on various islands during tours. Various combinations of flowers can be bred to form new colors, such as the yellow and red pansies, which create an orange pansy.

Each day, if it is not raining or snowing for at least six hours, there is a 80% chance for each non-watered flower to wilt at 6 a.m., turning a brown color. They can be revived by being watered with a watering can on the same day that they wilt, and will return to normal the following day. Watering flowers that have not wilted yet prevents the flower from wilting the next day. This wilting process applies to all flowers except the golden rose, dandelion and dandelion puffs. Flowers that have been watered show shiny petals and sparkle in Animal Crossing: New Leaf.

In New Leaf, flowers grows in groups of four, unlike in previous games where they grow in groups of three. The ability to wear flowers in the hair of a player, which was introduced in City Folk, also reappears, again taking the place of a hat. Hybridization remains a feature for flowers.

In later games, flowers, unless they are wilted, can be picked up as with any item. They can also be displayed in the player's house or, since Animal Crossing: City Folk, be worn on the player's hair. A flower worn this way will take the place of a hat. The rose, however, it is held between the teeth and will take the place of an accessory or helmet.

Flowers can be destroyed in some ways. If the player runs through one of the bunches, there is a 30% chance that the flowers will be destroyed. If the player attempts to pick up a wilted flower, the player plucks it instead, removing it. The player can also use a shovel to dig where the flower is, destroying it.

Pinkcosmos.png Pink cosmos Pink cosmos can be planted with a pink cosmos bag, which can be bought from Tom Nook's store.
Whitecosmos.png White cosmos The white cosmos can be planted with a white cosmos bag, which can be bought from Tom Nook's store. Since the white cosmos are yellow, it is named as yellow cosmos while the bag is renamed as Sun Cosmos Bag in Animal Crossing: Wild World and later.
Redtulip.png Red tulip A red tulip can be planted with a red tulip bag, which can be bought from Tom Nook's store.
White tulip A white tulip can be planted with a white tulip bag, which can be bought from Tom Nook's store.
Yellowtulip.png Yellow tulip A yellow tulip can be planted with a yellow tulip bag, which can be bought from Tom Nook's store.
Purplepansy.png Purple pansy A purple pansy can be planted with a purple pansy bag, which can be bought from Tom Nook's store.

White pansy A white pansy can be planted with a white pansy bag, which can be bought from Tom Nook's store.
Jacob's ladder While this flower cannot be bought in a bag, these flowers appear next to the cliffs only when the town is in perfect condition. These flowers appear in Dōbutsu no Mori e+ and later.

Special flowers

Image Type Description
Golden Roses.jpg Gold rose Gold roses are flowers that first appeared in Animal Crossing: Wild World. They can be made only by watering a wilted black rose with the golden can. The wilted black rose will turn into a gold rose the next day. Just like dandelions, gold roses will never wilt, but gold roses also never disappear from the town, unlike dandelions, which turn into dandelion puffs.
Carnations.jpg Carnation Carnations can be obtained only in City Folk and New Leaf. There are three colors - pink is obtained from the player's mother on Mother's Day (May 10th), the red is obtained from the player's father on Father's Day (June 21st), and white is created as a hybrid of the two.
Clover.jpg Clover Clovers grow frequently and are generally treated as weeds, disappearing after being pulled. However, the four leafed-clover grows very infrequently and is placed in the player's inventory. It has been known to affect luck, and can be worn in the hair or placed as furniture in the player's house, used as a bookmark.
Dandelion.jpg Dandelion Dandelions appear randomly around the town and are essentially classed as a weed in the real world, despite not affecting the town's environment since they count as a flower rather than a weed. They appear just like their real-life counterparts and look like a brighter version of a yellow cosmos, with thinner, fuller petals and heavier leaves. After a couple of days, a dandelion will turn into a dandelion puff (unless it is winter, in which they will stay as flowers until spring arrives). Dandelions cannot wilt.
Dandelion puff.jpg Dandelion puff The dandelion puff can be grown only when a normal dandelion is left for a certain space of time. The dandelion puff is the stage of a dandelion that has gone to seed, it is a collection of seeds with white parasols just like their real-life counterpart. This item, when held, can be blown by the player, hence the name "puff." When blown, the seeds float away and disappear into nothing. In City Folk, the parasols are much more realistic, complete with seeds. Dandelions turn into dandelion puffs after a couple of days, then the dandelion puff will disappear from the town after a couple of days has passed. Just like their flower stage, dandelion puffs cannot wilt.
Jacob's Ladder NL.png Jacob's ladder When the environment of a town reaches perfect level, the Jacob's Ladder flower grows around the town. This flower has no variations, appearing only as a cluster of whitish-green buds dangling from a leafy plant. This plant does not breed when placed near other Jacob's Ladders.
Rafflesia Pic.png Rafflesia The rafflesia is a large red plant that grows in the player's town after a large number of weeds accumulate. Once this plant appears in town, it means that the town is at the lowest rank. In reality, the plant is notorious for its smell; which, in game, is reflected by the presence of flies. After the removal of the weeds, the rafflesia will wilt, then disappear. If the player wants to remove the weeds, he or she should talk to Wisp the ghost and bring back all five spirits. Ridding the town of weeds is one of three choices as a reward. In many ways, it is the polar opposite of the Jacob's Ladder.

Hybridization

Hybrids can be obtained from Wild World onwards. In Animal Crossing, hybrids can be bought from Tom Nook's, but cannot be bred. However the Blue Cosmos cannot be obtained by any means, even through breeding in Wild World or later, due to the fact that it only exists in Dōbutsu no Mori e+ and earlier.

How to Hybridize

If two different specimen of the same species are planted next to each other, on the next morning, there is a chance they will interact and create a new flower in one of the spaces next to either of the parents. For example, red tulips and white tulips can produce pink tulips. There are a few guidelines to follow to do this.

  • The parent flowers should be adjacent, either right next to each other or diagonally.
  • There needs to be at least one space open next to each parent. This means that the flowers should not be entirely surrounded.

Even if the hybridization conditions are met, there is no guarantee it will occur. Only three to five new flowers appear in a town in a day, and most hybridization pairings can produce a non-hybrid child, so it may take a while for any particular hybridization to occur. There are a few things may increase the chance of hybridization.

  • Perfect town status
  • Luck from positive Feng Shui.
  • Watering dried out flowers that meet hybridization conditions.
  • Using a silver watering can
Some insects appear on flowers. In this case it is a snail on a Jacob's Ladder

Once a hybrid is produced, it can reproduce quickly by crossing it with any other flower. Not all flowers can create hybrids, however.

Hybrids In Animal Crossing: New Leaf

Hybrid flowers in Animal Crossing: New Leaf have a much different breeding pattern than the previous Animal Crossing games in the series.

Some colors of hybrid flowers require breeding with a certain hybrid color and then breeding them again with those specific colors from their specific parents. As such, a blue rose for instance can only be obtained by breeding a purple rose with a orange rose to get a special red rose, then breeding two special red roses to get a blue rose.

It's impossible to tell the difference between ordinary breeding flowers and specially breeding flowers, since they have the same name and appearance as ordinary breeding flowers. And because of that, they can easily get mixed in with other flowers and players can lose track of them.

But of course, this gives Animal Crossing: New Leaf a more realistic feel to how flowers are cross-bred in real life.
