Introduction: How to Breed All Hybrid Flowers in Animal Crossing New Horizons

About: Making and sharing are my two biggest passions! In total I've published hundreds of tutorials about everything from microcontrollers to knitting. I'm a New York City motorcyclist and unrepentant dog mom. My wo…

I love the new Animal Crossing New Horizons game for Nintendo Switch! This guide will bring out your inner botanist-gamer by showing you how to breed every hybrid flower in the game!

To breed flowers, plant them nearby each other and water them daily while in bloom (rain also works). A day or so later, you can see a new plant sprouting up nearby. That's the basic idea! To be most sure of the genetics of the resulting flower, plant only two of the same type near each other. Flowers can breed with any other flower in its perimeter, including diagonally (eight spots), so giving them space maximizes your chance of success. Flowers without a neighbor will clone. For this reason, I have planned-out "color cloning gardens" with various breeds in the same color.

Native flower genetics can vary within the same color (not all white roses have the same genes, for example), so it's important to start your breeding experiments with seeds.

TIP: Invite your friends over to water! Each new friend who waters a flower (up to 5) will boost its likelihood of reproducing that day. You'll see gold sparkles when five friends have watered.

Dead-end Purple = White + White (25% chance) -- Dead-end Purples cannot be used to make green!

Hybrid Yellow = Red + Yellow (100% chance)

Yellow-based Purple = Hybrid Yellow + Hybrid Yellow (25% chance)

Green = Yellow-based Purple + Yellow-based Purple (25% chance) OR Hybrid Yellow + Hybrid Yellow (6% chance)

Step 4: Windflowers

Pink = Red + Orange (100% chance)

Blue = White + White (25% chance)

Hybrid Red = Red + Blue (100% chance) OR Pink + Blue (25% chance)

Hybrid Pink = Pink + Blue (25% chance)

Purple = Hybrid Red + Hyrbid Red (6% chance)

Step 7: Hyacinths

Pink = Red + White (50% chance)

Orange = Red + Yellow (50% chance)

Blue = White + White (25% chance)

Purple = Orange + Orange (6% chance) OR Mystery Island Blue + Mystery Island Blue (25% chance)

Step 8: Roses

Pink = Red + White (50% chance) OR Red + Red (25% chance)

Dead-end Orange = Red + Yellow (50% chance) -- Dead-end Oranges can not be used to make Hybrid Red!

Purple = White + White (25% chance)

Black = Red + Red (25% chance)

Hybrid Orange = Black + Yellow (100% chance)

Hybrid Red = Hybrid Orange + Purple (25% chance)

Blue = Hybrid Red + Hybrid Red (50% chance that Hybrid Reds are viable; viable Hybrid Reds have a 1.6% chance of producing Blue)

Gold = Black, when watered with a Gold Watering Can (have to be standing right in front of it)
