How to Get Lilies | Using Lilies as a DIY Material | ACNH - Animal Crossing: New Horizons (Switch)

Animal Crossing New Horizons (ACNH) Lillies

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

How to Get Lilies

Buy Lily Seeds

ACNH - Leif

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

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

Use Lilies for Flower Breeding

ACNH - Lily Flower Breeding

For the rare colors like black lilies and orange lilies, 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 lilies may grow on your island if your birthday is between June 1st and September 30th. The wild lilies 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 Lilies on your cliffs, make and use a Ladder through DIY.

How to Climb Cliffs

Get them from Mystery Tours

If lilies 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 lilies 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!

Other Lily colors can be produced through lily 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!
