I am filled with the irrational urge to stomp upon it.


Flowers are found in Grasslands, Forests, or Savanna biomes. They cannot be found in Marshes or Rockyland. When picked, they restore 5 Sanity and produce Petals, which, when eaten, restore 1 Health. There are 10 different kinds of Flowers, but they all have the same effect.

Flowers serve a variety of purposes. Picking 12 of them for their Petals allows the creation of a Garland, which provides a Sanity boost over time in addition to the 5 Sanity gained from picking each Flower. This is especially useful early on in the game.

Flowers also spawn Butterflies, which can be killed for their Butterfly Wings or Butter, or be captured in a Bug Net. Captured Butterflies can be planted anywhere to produce a new Flower, thus making each of these items renewable. Homeless Bees can also produce Flowers over time, after pollinating 6 Flowers. Many Flowers can be planted together to build a Butterfly farm, an area where Butterflies can easily be killed for their wings. Large groups of Flowers are also useful for Honey production. Building Bee Boxes near such fields increases the speed at which the Bees produce Honey.


Flowers can be manually cultivated by planting living Butterflies. Using a Bug Net to capture any number of Butterflies, the player can right click them on the ground to plant them as they would plant Pine Cones or Grass Tufts. One Butterfly can be planted to create one Flower in a location of the player's choosing. The physical area occupied by the Flower is very small, allowing for densely planted Flower gardens.

Cultivation of Flowers is of interest because of their Sanity bonus when picked and use for Crafting the Garland and the Pretty Parasol, however the long term use of cultivation is the creation of efficient Honey farms through the use of Bee Boxes, for which an ample supply of Flowers is necessary.

Because Flowers spawn Butterflies, cultivation of a large Flower bed can usually proceed very quickly, provided the player has sufficient materials to build new Bug Nets.

In all DLCs, new Flowers will spawn without the aid of Butterflies or Bees in the Rain. During a full moon, Flowers will turn into Evil Flowers, and return to normal afterwards.

In the Reign of Giants DLC, Tumbleweeds can also drop Petals, Dark Petals, and Foliage, making them all renewable resources.

In the Shipwrecked DLC, regular Flowers can be found in Jungle and Meadow Biomes, while Evil Flowers can be found around Regular Jungle Trees. They may also spawn from spending Dubloons at the Slot Machine, making them renewable in another way.

In the Hamlet DLC, regular Flowers can be found in Battleground Biomes. Fern can be found in Cave Clefts.
