How to Get Lily of the Valley

Our team has verified that Lily-of-the-Valley flowers will start to bloom on your island within 3 to 7 days after your island earns a 5 star rating.

How to Raise Your Island Star Rating

Where do Lily-of-the-Valley Flowers Bloom?

Blooms on the Southern Edges of Cliffs

Lily-of-the-Valley South of Cliff.jpg
On the south edges of your cliffs, leave an empty, 2x3 space, for each Lily-of-the-Valley flower to potentially bloom.

Is Lily of the Valley Breeding Possible?

While you can water Lilies of the Valley and get them to sparkle, it's impossible to breed any more, unfortunately!

No Lily-of-the-Valley seeds

There are also no seeds for Lily-of-the-Valley flowers to buy from Nook's Cranny or from Leif, even if you have a 5 star rating.

How to Get More Lily-of-the-Valley Flowers

Maintain Your Island's 5 Star Rating

5 Star Rating.jpg

Lily-of-the-Valley flowers will stop blooming if your island's star rating falls below 5 stars.

If you notice that Lily-of-the-Valley flowers aren't blooming anymore, talk to Isabelle to check your star rating - it might be below 5 stars.

Max 1 Lily-of-the-Valley Bloom per Day

Lily-of-the-Valley Max Blooms.jpg
Only one Lily-of-the-Valley flower can bloom per day. On top of that, Lily-of-the-Valley flowers do not bloom every day, but only have a chance to do so!

As such, you will have to be very patient to get enough flowers for a garden of Lily-of-the-Valley.

We do have some good news, however:

Unlimited Lily-of-the-Valley flowers

After we moved 10 or more Lily-of-the-Valley flowers from the south edges of cliffs to somewhere else, new Lily-of-the-Valley flowers bloomed in the emptied spaces.

In short, there is probably no limit to how many Lily-of-the-Valley flowers you can have on your island!

Time Travel for Lily-of-the-Valley Flowers

How to Get Lily-of-the-Valley Flowers Fast
1 Create cliffs big enough for Lily-of-the-Valley flowers to bloom.
2 Time travel to the future, one day at a time, and check if there is a new bloom.

1. Create cliffs big enough for Lily-of-the-Valley

Lily-of-the-Valley on Cliffs.jpg
We recommend creating cliffs specifically for growing Lily-of-the-Valley flowers.

Placing fences, items or other flowers on the southern edges of all other cliffs will prevent Lily-of-the-Valley flowers from growing there, which means you only have to check your new cliffs for blooms every day.

How to Make Cliffs

2. Time travel and check for flowers


It's important to time travel to the future only one day at a time, as you may have to rid your cliff of weeds and check that your island rating stays at 5 stars.

Skipping multiple days at a time does not increase the spawn rate of Lily-of-the-Valley flowers.

What to Do with Lily-of-the-Valley Flowers

Create a Lily-of-the-Valley Garden

Lily-of-the-Valley for Replanting.jpg
You can only use Lily-of-the-Valley flowers for planting, but they are rare and a sign that your island is thriving; perfect for showing off!

You won't be able to collect their blooms in a vase, but you will be able to dig them with a shovel for replanting.

No Crossbreeding and No Hybrids

Lily-of-the-Valley No Hybrids.jpg
Lily-of-the-Valley flowers cannot be crossbred. This means that a Lily-of-the-Valley flowerbed will not bloom more of the same nor additional hybrids.

Will Never Wilt or Disappear

Result after lowering island's star rating, by allowing weeds to grow and removing decorations.

Even if your island's star rating goes down, the Lily-of-the-Valley flowers you have will never die or disappear. Once you're satisfied with your Lily-of-the-Valley garden, you won't have to maintain your island star rating!

Types of Lily-of-the-Valley

Only Ordinary Lily-of-the-Valley Exists

Only white, ordinary Lily-of-the-Valley exists. They cannot be crossbred to bloom color variations.
