A Simple Guide to Flowers and Hybrids in New Horizons
At the beginning of the game, your island is a blank canvas just waiting for you to start your unique customization process. While trees can alter the general look and feel of your island, there’s better than the colorful small flower to make your new home prettier.
Every Animal Crossing island spawns with a primary and secondary flower type. The primary flower type is the flower players find actively growing on their home islands, and the secondary is the flower type always found during Mystery Island tours, as well as in seed packs sold at Nook’s Cranny or Leif’s Flower Shop. To gather the other flower types, players will need to travel to a friends’ islands and visit their stores, or hope to stumble on rare flowers while visiting Mystery Islands.
As well as having aesthetic and bug-attracting qualities, flowers are useful tools in many DIY crafting recipes. It’s also easy to earn Nook Miles while tending to them. Excitingly, a new feature in New Horizons means that you can take the bloom from a fully developed flower whilst leaving the stalk intact. After a few days, the flower will bloom once again.
Many objectives in the game also tie in with the plant life of your island. For example, to unlock K.K. Slider you’ll need a three-star island rating from Isabelle – something you need to plant a minimum of fifty flowers to achieve. So not only are flowers pretty to look at, they are a key tool for advancement in the game.
