Animal Crossing New Horizons (ACNH) Mums

This is a guide for the mum flowers found in Animal Crossing: New Horizons (ACNH). See how to get Mums, as well as lists of Mum colors and Mum DIYs.

How to Get Mums

Buy Mum Seeds

ACNH - Leif

You can buy mum seeds from Nook's Cranny or from Leif's Garden Shop. One bag of mum seeds costs 240 bells while five bags cost 1200 bells.

This is by far the most recommended method to get Mums, as getting them any other way requires a bit of luck.

Use Mums for Flower Breeding

ACNH - Mum Flower Breeding

For the rare colors like pink mums and purple mums, you need to breed the normal colors and work towards the flower that you want, as these don't grow in the wild.

Find them on Your Island

Red, yellow, and white mums may grow on your island if your birthday is between August 1st and January 31st. The wild mums will grow on top of the cliffs on your island, so you need access to those first.

Use a Ladder to Get the Flowers

To access the Mums on your cliffs, make and use a Ladder through DIY.

How to Climb Cliffs

Get them from Mystery Tours

If mums are not growing natively on your island, there is a chance they might grow on Mystery Islands. Note that Mystery Islands can only ever give you one other type of flower, so you're not guaranteed to find mums on them.

Trade Online

If you're struggling to get a specific flower type or hybrid color, trading with others online might be the quickest way to get them!

Hybrid Mums

Other Mum colors can be produced through mum flower breeding, or be found on a Mystery Tour. The island with hybrid flowers is very rare, however, so we recommend breeding them yourself or trading online!
