Crocus: Sources, Uses, and More

Nathan

Crocus is everywhere during Winter – but do you know where to find them? We’ll teach you everything about it alongside its good uses!

A purple-colored Crocus is one of the most beautiful flowers!

Since all greens don’t grow under thick snow patches, expect random stones and logs on your farm. What was once thriving becomes a temporary wasteland – but it’s still beautiful because of the blizzard and dirt covered in white. Luckily, some foraged items in Stardew Valley still bloom even if it’s purple-colored.

It’s attractive and pleasant to the eyes – a Crocus that grows on Winter 1 until the end of the month. This item guide will talk about the wild loot, where to get it, and what it can offer to your gameplay.

What is a Crocus?

This edible flower is one of Winter’s many wonders. It’s an item worth collecting because of its elegant design by nature. While it’s safe to eat, you won’t get Energy or Health regeneration.

How to Find a Crocus?

It’s not as elusive as other foraged items like Winter Root and Snow Yam. However, there are three options available to get the flower:

  • Foraging in the Winter – You can forage anywhere around Stardew Valley (except Calico Desert and Ginger Island) with a high guarantee of getting one.

  • Wild Winter Seeds – After crafting the item on the Player Menu, you’ll get 10x seeds. Plant it at your homestead or Greenhouse and wait for seven days. The outcome is randomized, and the Botanist profession will take effect.

Selling Prices

With Botanist, you’ll always get the highest quality. However, it’s better after cultivating them using Wild Seeds (Wi).

Stardew Valley is my go-to comfort world after playing competitive CSGO. I am incredibly fond of pixel arts and games regardless of the genre.
