Max 1 Lily of the Valley Bloom per Day

ACNH -  Lily of the Valley Max Blooms
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. They only have a chance to do so!

However, our team found that there's probably no limit to how many Lily of the Valley flowers you can have in your island. You just have to be patient!

Time Travel for Lily of the Valley Flowers

How to Get Lily of the Valley Flowers Fast
1  Create cliffs.
2  Time travel to the future.

1. Create cliffs big enough for Lily of the Valley

ACNH - Lily of the Valley on Cliffs
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

ACNH - TimeTravel

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.

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