Animal Crossing: New Horizons hybrid flower and rare plant guide

by Alan Bernal


Acquiring some of the rarest flowers in Animal Crossing: Crossing New Horizon is going to take a careful look at a hybrid guide that tells you exactly how to position your garden to unlock more varieties.

It’s not something the game gives players too many clues about, but there are ways of getting wildly different hues for different flowers. This can lead to some eye-catching blossoms like a brown cosmo or even black rose.

Just like with achieving anything in New Horizons, getting the different kinds of flowers is a process. For some of the rarer varieties, there are even ‘purebred’ colors to consider when arranging one’s garden.

Taking care of your flowers every day is key to getting new colors in New Horizons.


User ‘muppetmaker’ showed a guide with everything players will need to get the most out of Animal Crossing’s plant combinations to create incredible new colors.

To create the flowers, the guide shows how they should be arranged on the ground. They’ve listed an extensive look into all of the flower arrangements for windflowers, lilies, mums, hyacinths, pansies, tulips, cosmos, and roses.

Some players will be surprised to see that there are combinations that result in a different kind of flower which, paired with another of its type, actually makes a completely different color altogether.


While there’s still a numbers game behind the cute facade of Animal Crossing, the creators of the chart made sure to use this as a general color guide for the possible different types.

But some of them are going to take purebred flowers. There isn’t anything too important to note from purebreds other than they are flowers that bloom directly from seeds.

Even though there isn’t much of a difference on the surface, it’s something to keep in mind while arranging your garden to avoid any unintended results.

Being on top of your New Horizons garden can yield more flower colors.


While flowers aren’t as coveted as other builds, fruits, etc, New Horizons is all about customizing every facet of your island.

There has been incredible creations already made in the game, like reimaginings for scenes from hit blockbuster movies and a lot more.

To get the max out of your garden or get that last little detail right by having a specific type of flower color, you’ll want to follow the Animal Crossing: New Horizons hybrid flower guide.
