Flowers are naturally occurring plants that come in a variety of shapes and colors.

Obtaining[edit | edit source]

See also: Flower farming

Flowers can be instantly broken with any item (or no item). Flowers will also be broken if water runs over its location, or if a piston extends or pushes a block into its location. In Pocket Edition, breaking a tall flower drops two of itself, rather than just one of itself; this is MCPE-13304.

Natural generation[edit | edit source]

Flowers naturally generate on dirt and grass blocks. Even in a biome covered with snow, flowers will generate naturally on dirt blocks with grass, despite the adjoining dirt blocks being covered with snow. They also need light to grow if bonemeal is used on a grass block.

Drops[edit | edit source]

Iron golems drop 0 to 2 poppies upon death.

Bone meal[edit | edit source]

When bone meal is applied to a grass block, flowers have a chance of generating instead of tall grass on the targeted block and adjacent grass blocks up to 7 blocks away (taxicab distance). The generated flower depends on the biome (see below).

When bone meal is applied to a double flower, a second double flower will spawn as an item.

Flower biomes[edit | edit source]

This chart shows the types of flowers that can naturally generate in each biome, and which biomes can generate flowers when bone meal is used on grass blocks. Flowers marked "generation" only generate as part of the biome from chunk generation.

Usage[edit | edit source]

All flowers can be used as decoration and crafted into dyes; all can be planted in grass or dirt, and one-block flowers can be planted in a flower pot.

Navigation[edit | edit source]

Sunflowers always face east, so they can be used as a direction guide.

Breeding[edit | edit source]

Dandelions can be used to breed, grow and lead rabbits.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Due to the nature of the flowers' generation algorithm, it is possible (but relatively rare) to find naturally-generated flowers and grass in lava, caverns or abandoned mineshafts.
    • Also, it is possible to find flowers and seeds dropped as an item on the ground naturally, due to failure to generate on an acceptable block.
  • Like other non-solid transparent blocks, flowers can break falling objects, like sand.
  • Jeb noted that peonies were the flowers that were used for his wedding.[1]
  • Neither roses nor rose bushes apply damage when walked through, despite roses having thorns.
  • Flowers generated from bone meal in a flower forest biome depend only on the horizontal position; the world seed has no effect. The flowers generated with the chunk do depend on the world seed.
    • The flowers generate along a gradient: dandelion, poppy, allium, azure bluet, red tulip, orange tulip, white tulip, pink tulip, oxeye daisy.
  • Allium is a genus composed of bulb vegetables such as onions, garlic and related vegetables, which have large, pink inflorescences resembling that of the flower item.
  • Using bone meal on any small flower in Pocket Edition will generate more flowers around it, without grass.
