Minecraft flowers are very useful in making dyes, suspicious stew and honey, alongside decorative uses.

  • All flowers can be crafted into dyes of the same color. For example, lily of the valley is used in making white dye, while other flowers are for dyeing armors and other items. They can be planted on grass blocks, dirt, or coarse dirt. Wither Roses can even be planted on netherrack, soul sand or soul soil.
