Sunflowers are tall, yellow flowers that can stop the spreading of Corruption. This is their only known use in the game so far. It can also be noted that when one places a sunflower it seems to get brighter. They spawn in the forest biome, often in groups. The Sunflower can only be placed on a grass surface that is at least 2 blocks wide, and the surface can not have any back walls. They cannot be placed underwater.
They can be collected by hitting the block the flower sits on or directly mining the sunflower with a Pickaxe. Sunflowers also have the ability to spawn more sunflowers in a small area, but the chance is very low. This will only occur on grassy dirt blocks.
Sunflowers can be placed like any block, you just need the right condition (as mentioned above), have it in your inventory, and left click the ground.
- It seems like in 1.2 Sunflowers do block The Corruption, but because they block only 2 tiles it will be able to cross a single Sunflower.
- Now will reduce the Crimson's effects.
- Added to the game.
