FLOWER BREEDING

Let’s talk about flowers. Why you need them, where you can find them and how to breed them.

Uses-

Flowers can be used for decoration on your island by planting them directly onto grass blocks or planting them in pots that are crafted using the Pottery Bench that you can buy from the Florist in the Hub. I personally love the ways I can decorate my island with the variety of colors and flowers available since the update!

You can create different colored blocks using non-fertile flowers using the Coloring Station. Having a variety of different colored blocks is essential if you like to get creative on your island. 

A variety of flowers are also needed to create furniture items. Along with furniture, you can craft colored carpets and colored glass. I sell a lot of furniture on my island so I am in constant need of non-fertile flowers.

You can also sell flowers in your vending machines. This is a great way to gain more coins. Non-fertile blue, red and yellow flowers can sell for a lot of coin and some of the more rare FERTILE flowers can sell for up to millions of coins. Who couldn’t use more coins????

Where to find them-

There are four types of flowers that will automatically spawn on the grassy areas of your island. They are lilies, daisies, hyacinth, and hibiscus. The flowers that spawn on your island will always be FERTILE, which means you can breed them to create more flowers.  Be sure to collect the fertile flowers often so that more flowers will spawn. You can collect any flower that spawns on your island by hovering over it with your cursor and pressing the “F” button.

In order from most common to rare, here is what fertile flowers you can expect to see spawn on your island. Red, Yellow and Blue Lillies, Red and Yellow Daisies, Yellow, Red and Blue Hyacinth, and Light Green and Blue Hibiscus. With this base collection of flowers you can breed them to create more colors of the specific type of flower. Here is what you can breed using only the flowers that automatically spawn on your island.. 

Red Lily + Red Lily = Black Lily 

Blue Lily + Blue Lily = Cyan Lily 

Yellow Lily + Yellow Lily = TBD

Yellow Daisy + Yellow Daisy = White Daisy 

Red Daisy + Red Daisy = Cyan Daisy

Blue Hyacinth + Blue Hyacinth = Cyan Hyacinth 

Red Hyacinth + Red Hyacinth = Light Green Hyacinth 

Yellow Hyacinth + Yellow Hyacinth = Light Green, Orange, or Red Hyacinth

Light Green Hibiscus + Light Green Hibiscus = Black, Blue or Pink Hibiscus 

Blue Hibiscus + Blue Hibiscus = Pink Hibiscus or Purple Hibiscus

I like to call these certain colors “carriers”, meaning that the flower will produce the results I mentioned alone, combined with the same color and type of flower or combined with a flower of different color or type. For example, if you breed a Red Lily and a Blue Hyacinth you will eventually get a Black Lily OR a Cyan Hyacinth since the flowers you are breeding produce only those flowers. Flower species will never cross-breed. Your results, if you mix breed types, are because of the carrier flowers. 

In addition to the flowers that spawn on your island, you can purchase Fertile Daffodils from the Florist located in the Hub. You will need to complete challenges to get petals and for the cost of 35 petals each, you can buy Fertile Red Daffodils or Fertile Yellow Daffodils. 

Red Daffodils will create orange, yellow and light green daffodils.

Yellow Daffodils will create Light Green Daffodils.

Breeding-

Since you now know what purpose the flowers serve and what colors you can start out with, let’s talk about breeding. I suggest breeding flowers in larger groups for faster results. Sure you can water ONE flower and eventually get a colored flower instead of a mundane but this will take much longer than breeding multiple flowers at one time. Of course if you are just starting out you won’t have a lot of flowers. My suggestion is to breed them all together in a specific area you create for breeding. It has been said that if you can breed flowers in an area with bees, you will have better results. I have been breeding in a covered area that I made specifically for breeding under my island. It has been working fine for me, or so I thought, until I moved some flowers I couldn’t get to breed into an area with bees. On the first watering, I got flowers that I had trouble getting in my breeding area. 

Try different things to see what works best for you! There are different layouts that you can try. I personally like to line up the flowers directly next to each other in a row of no more than 6, with a block space row that separates another row of flowers and repeat. Think of a rectangle with a row of flowers lining the top, a space, another row, a space and another row. There is also the alternating flower layout where you place a flower then have a block space and then place down the next flower. Continue this for a few rows to create a zigzag pattern. This method takes more time to harvest since you can’t just pick up the spawned flowers in a row like the first layout. 

Once you have your fertile flowers placed in the area that you want, you will need to water them. Unlike the crops, you can not set up an automatic watering system. You will need to use the wooden watering can to water each flower. You create the watering can in your workbench. Hold your watering can and click on the flower you wish to water. You can tell if the flower has been watered by the little blue droplets falling from the flowers petals. It will take 10 minutes for the new flowers to spawn.

Three types of flowers can spawn when you water. –

Mundane flowers– This will be the most common flower to spawn and is dark grey. There currently isn’t any use for mundane flowers other than decoration. 

Regular flowers–  These are the flowers you can use in crafting recipes and for decoration. 

Fertile flowers-  These flowers can be used to breed more flowers. The spawning of fertile flowers takes more time, so keep watering and harvesting your flowers! You can tell if a flower is fertile by hovering your cursor over the flower and if it is fertile, it will say FERTILE with whatever type of flower it is. For example, FERTILE RED LILY

If a colored flower doesn’t appear right away, that’s okay just keep trying. Patience and consistency is key! So try a layout about ten or so times before you switch it up. 

I can’t leave the original daffodil and crocus off the list.  These flowers are found on Wizard Island. They are purely for decoration as you can not breed them. The cool thing about these flowers are they can be placed on any block such as brick or stone, whereas the other flowers can only be placed on grass blocks.  

I hope this helps you better understand the purpose of flowers and more importantly hope it gets you interested in breeding and making awesome new flower color combinations! If you want to know how many colors are available for each flower type, please refer to the chart below. For a complete and up-to-date list of flower color combinations (that I personally have tried time and time again and know work) please continue to scroll to the bottom of this post.  If I do not have a breeding result listed it is because I have not been able to get a consistent result. Please check back frequently as I update this post when I have new combination findings.

  1. wow this is a really good post, consider making the combinations section into a downloadable pdf. Its so good !

  2. Mister Deez for your Blue Hibiscus + Blue Hibiscus combination, please add Purple Hibiscus to it as well. I have grown 3 non-fertile Purple Hibiscus from just the blues… Oh bye the way great post, this page is my go to guild on flower combinations…

    1. Thank you for the comment! I will be sure to try the blue/blue hibiscus combination to recreate the purple result you have gotten. Were the planted in an area with bees?

      1. Yes they are planted in an area with bees. I singled the blues away from the other colors and was still able to reproduce the purple on multiple occasions since posting the original comment. I am also wondering, does watering the flowers at night vs day or day vs night give you a higher chance for fertile flowers. It seems like I get more fertile when I water at night in the game. One last thing, the water can does run out even though it still shows you watering the flowers and the flowers are wet. You get a lot of mundanes, if you do not fill your water can. I have a water storage beside the water catcher. I empty the water can into the storage after every watering of flowers. I then pick axe and replace the storage when it fills up to empty it…

        1. I was able to get a purple, like you mentioned, when I tried in an area with bees. I just had two fertile blue hibiscus away from everything with a single space between them. Thanks for the tip! I never realized the watering can runs out? I am going to try your method with the water storage to see if that changes anything with the frequency of mundanes 🙂

    1. Do you have a lot of grass blocks on your island? Are you clearing your fertile flowers that spawn often? My suggestion would be to check all the possible grassy areas on your island in case one spawned by some of your smelters or something. If you don’t have a lot of grass, plant some and hopefully this will help fertile flowers spawn more frequently. Good luck!

  3. I think bees also affect flower breedings. Because when I breed red daisies near bees, they will produce cyan daisies. But when I change a place to breed red daisies(without bees), it doesn’t produce cyan anymore.
    Also here’s other combinations I’ve found for daisies
    Red + Red = Mundane/Cyan (Might need bees nearby)
    White + White = Mundane/Cyan/Light Green
    Cyan + Cyan = Mundane/Dark Green
    Dark Green + Dark Green = Mundane/Light Green (Might need bees nearby)

    1. Thank you for sharing! I think you are right, I have a space for breeding underground and have had issues producing cyan daisies but when I moved my white and red daisies to an area with bees, cyan popped up on the first watering and every watering since! Can’t wait for a fertile cyan daisy so I can test the other combos!

      1. Hi there. Yes, they need to be fertile. All of the flower types will need to be fertile in order for you to breed them. To get a fertile black lily you will need to keep breeding red lilies to get black lilies and then eventually a FERTILE black lily will spawn.

    1. Yes the flowers will act as carriers, if that makes any sense. So if you have a black fertile with a blue hyacinth, chances are you will breed a cyan hyacinth or cyan lily. Thanks for sharing!

    1. Hi there. We test each combination multiple times before ever posting it so we can be sure they are correct. A few suggestions for you if you are having issues breeding: make sure you are breeding multiple of the same flowers if you can for greater chances of breeding a non-mundane flower. Also if you have bees on your island, plant and breed your flowers in close proximity to the bees. This was a huge help for me when I could not get my white or red daisies to breed. Just keep trying 🙂

    1. Hi Carson, the best way to get a black fertile flower (lily or hibiscus) is to keep watering your flowers that make the black flower combos (the combos are listed in the post above). Just be patient and keep at it and a fertile will eventually spawn. As far as we can tell the production of fertile flowers is random. Best of luck!

  4. How do I get fertile flowers that aren’t the basic ones that spawn on your island? Ex. light green hibiscus and blue hibiscus

    1. Hi there! What spawns on your island is totally random so the best way to hope for the Lt. Green or Blue Hibiscus is just to keep harvesting all of the other fertile flowers that pop up on your island frequently to increase the production rate, if that makes sense.

  5. I have seen my fertile orange daffodils produce flowers, but usually they do not generate anything. How do I get them to breed?

    1. Hi there! I am having the same issue. So far I have not been able to get them to breed with each other. I have also tried with other colored daffodils but they do not produce anything outside of what the red, lt. green or yellow already produce. Everyday I try new things and as soon as I figure it out, I will be sure to post here! Let me know if you get any results 🙂

    1. Hi padej 🙂 The hibiscus seem to be able to breed cross-color whereas the lily, daisy, hyacinth, and daffodils can breed within the same color. Since the lily, daisy, hyacinth are more common to appear on your island, you will likely collect many of the same color of the same flower.

  6. i think you should check some of these because i have tried all of them like 100 times exept for the hibiscis, and every time i try it makes mundane

    1. Hi there 🙂 We have been testing these combos since the flower update. You might need to test on a larger patch of flowers. For example if you have three rows of 6 red lilies (total of 18 lilies) with one space between the rows (think rectangle plot of grass), every time you water, you will for sure get more than one black lily. Best of luck!

  7. also, found out that:
    Lily:
    Black+Yellow=Cyan
    I’ve tested it, and theres now way a cyan flower would just pop out of nowhere being right next to those flowers.

    1. Hi James! Thanks for your comment! I have only posted combinations that I have tried and know work. I will try your combos and add them to the post if I can get them to duplicate. Thank you so much for sharing!

      1. hi there i found out yesturday that when i put fertile yellow and red hyacith together it came out a light green hyacith, idk if it works for u but i just got it once, it was like 1% chance

        1. Hi yes! That is exactly what we get. Since the red and red hyacinth will spawn light green, and yellow and yellow can also spawn light green, it sounds about right that when you mix red with yellow you will get a light green. Thanks for letting us know!

    1. Sorry for the late reply. You can only breed fertilized flowers. You can use the unfertilized to make colored block, furniture or plant them for decoration. You will have to wait until fertilized flowers spawn on your island or you can always purchase them from other players as well as get them from drops from fighting slime 🙂 Hope this helps!

        1. Hi Vix 🙂 To make a cyan daisy you will need to breed fertile white daisy with fertile white daisy or fertile red daisy with fertile red daisy. I was only able to get a consistent result when I bred the daisies in an area with bees. Good luck!

    1. Most of the time when breeding flowers you get mundane flowers. We’ve tested these combo’s more than once, so we are confident that they work.

          1. Hi there. It really depends on how many you are breeding. For instance, I have three rows of red lilies with a space in between the rows. Each row has 6-7 fertile lilies. so a total of 18-21 lilies. When I water them, they will usually spawn about 5-6 black flowers and the rest mundane. Since they take 10 minutes to spawn, I will plan on being there to pick up all flowers that spawned and usually another round of flowers will come up (but you have to be there right when they are spawning). I find that every 3-4 rounds of watering, I will get at least one FERTILE black lily. So the more frequently you breed and the more flowers you have, will increase the spawning of a FERTILE flower. Hope that helps.
