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.

Originally releasing on the GameCube in 2001, Animal Crossing has become a juggernaut for Nintendo. Its latest release, New Horizons, has given players an unprecedented amount of freedom to shape their island to their wildest imaginations.

Using the new game mechanics, a Pokemon fan set out to recreate what is perhaps the most iconic location in the Game Freak RPG – a Pokecenter. Artist ‘acnh.pokeland‘ shared their incredible project on the r/AnimalCrossing and r/Pokemon subreddits on January 5. “Pokéland is now opened!! 1st section: The Pokémon Center!!” they wrote.

The image shows the user’s Animal Crossing avatar adorably posing in Nurse Joy’s signature medical uniform. The artist creatively used various New Horizons items to bring the location to life, such as a pink shirt behind the counter featuring a Blissey design, and round hats patterned to look like Pokeballs.

Incredibly this isn’t the only location the talented fan has created in New Horizons. Over on their Instagram account, they showed off images of their Poke-Mart as well. Longtime players of the RPG will remember the in-game store used to be a separate building up until Gen IV.

This isn’t the first time Pokemon fans have gotten creative in the Switch title. In May, one Animal Crossing user recreated battle Stadiums from the RPG. Players in July also used the custom Fireworks feature to light up the sky with popular ‘mon.

Despite releasing only at the beginning of 2020, New Horizons is already the second highest-selling game in Japan of all time. The social simulation title has sparked the imaginations of millions – including many creative Pokefans.
