A player will be able to get the seeds of White Mum from Leif’s Garden Shop Or Nook’s Cranny. A bag of White Mum Animal Crossing seeds will cost the player 240 Bells.

Each Island has a different set of flower bags and there is a chance the players’ island need not necessarily sell White Mum Seeds. If one’s island does not sell White Mum seeds then the player could try visiting their friend’s island to check whether the island sells the flowers or not.

2. White Mum on the Island

There is a chance that White Mums could grow on the island of the players. In order for this to happen the player must have their birthday between August 1st and January 31st.

White Mums can be seen to be growing on top of the cliffs if the player’s island can grow these flowers. In order to get the White Mum from the top of the cliff, the player will have to climb the hill using a ladder.

3. Mystery Tour

If White Mums are not naturally growing on the player’s island then there is a chance the plants could be growing on mystery islands.

It is important to note that on a mystery island only one other type of flower would grow, so it is not guaranteed that White Mums would be available in these islands.

4. Online Trading

Trading with other players online would be the fastest way to get a specific type of flower or the color that one is looking for if the player is struggling to find that specific flower type.

Multiplying White Mum Animal Crossing

How to Breed White Mum

  1. The player will need to gather White Mums, whether it is seeds or a wild mum.
  2. Plant the White Mum Animal Crossing.
  3. Water the plant regularly.
  4. Check whether the flower has sprouted from the plant. If the flower is absent then continue to water the plant until the flower appears.

Even with all the preconditions satisfied it is not necessary that the flowers need to appear the very next day. In such a situation the only thing the player can do is to keep on watering the plant until a favorable result comes.

These flowers can also be used to make a lot of other breeds of flowers so it is recommended to grow a lot of this type of flowers. In order to grow more White Mums, one will need to repeat the breeding process to get more flowers.

Fun Fact: White Mums and Red Mums can be bred together to make Pink Mums and there is a 25% chance that White Mums when bred together can make Purple Mums.


The best and probably the easiest way to ensure the player gets more White Mum Animal Crossing is to clone the White Mum the player already has.

Cloning a flower is very simple. All the player needs to do is to plant the flower in a place where the plant is not touching any other flower of the same type. Water the flower regularly and the flower would make a copy of itself in an empty space eventually.
