Flowers are plants that appear in the Animal Crossing series. They will randomly generate throughout the town once a new save file is created. They can be planted either by players or villagers, although some special flowers only occur when specific criteria are satisfied. Flowers will grow throughout the year. They serve a variety of purposes, such as attracting bugs and developing a perfect town status. They can also be placed in a house as furniture or be worn by the player.

There are many different types of flowers and they come in a variety of colors. Players can develop hybrids of certain types of flowers through selective breeding.

Overview

Flower seeds can be purchased from the Gardening Store or Tom Nook's store. Once grown, they can be transplanted, worn as accessories, used in home decor, or given as gifts.

Wilted flowers become dull brown and are destroyed if picked, but can be restored if watered with a watering can on the same day as they wilt. Flowers will slightly brighten up upon watering; precipitation will also revive flowers. They will not wilt if the Beautiful Town ordinance is in effect.

Running across flowers gives a chance of destruction. Digging up flowers with a shovel will immediately destroy them.

Bugs on flowers

Many bug species only occur adjacent to flowers, including ladybugs, snails, mantises, bees and certain butterflies. Until New Leaf tulips did not attract any bugs. Three bugs, peacocks, orchid mantids, and tiger butterflies, are attracted only to specific colors of flowers. For instance the peacock butterfly only when blue, black, or purple flowers are present.

The related dandelion, a variety of weed, attracts only orchid mantids.

Jacob's ladders

Main article: Jacob's Ladder

When the environment of a town reaches perfect level, the Jacob's ladder flower grows usually on the edge of a cliff. It is a rare and desirable flower. In growing hybrids, placing Jacob's ladder next to parent flowers increases the chances of germinating a hybrid.

Dandelion

Main article: Dandelion

A dandelion appears randomly, and although essentially a weed, it does not affect town status. It is brighter and fuller in appearance than yellow cosmos. After a few days, dandelion flowers turn white and become puffs which can be held and blown away by the player resulting in the seeds floating away and disappearing. Puffs do not re-seed.

Rafflesia

Main article: Rafflesia

The rafflesia is a large, red plant growing in the player's town when a large number of weeds accumulate. Its appearance means the town is at the lowest rank. The real-world rafflesia is notorious for its smell: in the Animal Crossing series, this is represented by the presence of flies attracted by the rotting odor.

To rid the town of weeds, either the player must pull them up or talk to Wisp who will grant a wish to remove all weeds if the player completes a task. Ridding all weeds in the town will make the rafflesia wilt and disappear. In New Leaf, the player can talk to Leif. He is shown sleeping as a villager would inside their houses. He will be traumatized by the weeds while the player is talking to him. Leif will then ask the player to help him pick the weeds. Once the player has picked all of the weeds, the player can talk to Leif again and he will give the player a rare floral styled furniture item.

Guide to hybrids

Plant flowers of the same type either side-to-side or diagonally. The next morning, a new flower may occur adjacent to one of the parents. Neither germination nor the occurrence of a hybrid color are guaranteed, as only 3-5 new flowers appear each day and hybrid colors occur less frequently than standard colors.

Required factors:

  • The parents must be adjacent (next to each other side-to-side or diagonally).
  • At least one open empty space must be available next to each parent flower.
  • Same type of flower.

Beneficial factors:

  • Perfect town status.
  • Good luck from Feng Shui.
  • Presence of Jacob's ladders next to either parent.
  • Water the flowers after planting using a silver watering can.
  • Fertilizer (only in New Leaf).

Trivia

  • If a watered flower is picked up and moved elsewhere, it will not retain its watered state. Likewise, if an unwatered flower is moved onto an already watered square on the ground, it will count as watered.
