How To Get Mums

Both Mum seeds & bulbs can be purchased at Nook's Cranny!

Check Out Nook's Cranny In Detail Here!

Each Island Has Different Buyable Flower Seeds

Each island sells different flower bags! If your island doesn't sell Mums, visit another player's island to get them.

Pick Flowers On Your Island

Some islands naturally have Mums from the beginning of the game. They grow on the clifftop so you'll need to use a ladder to get to them.

If you can't find any on your island, consider asking a friend to give you some!

Color Variations Can Appear By Chance

Flowers have their own individual DNA, which only gets more complicated the more you breed them. There can also be various different ways of getting the same color flower. This means that there is indeed an element of chance involved in the process.

Possible To Get Unexpected Color

It's possible to get another color even if you use the combinations listed above. If so, try the following:

  • Remove the unwanted flower and try again
  • Buy new flowers with "fresh" DNA

How can you tell which flowers are hybrids after you may have moved them around?
