The Tortimer’s Floral Fancy gardening event has begun in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp for iOS and Android, running from from December 27th to January 6th. Learn how to grow event Peony flowers, catch Ripplewing creatures, and get the full Camellia Zen set in our complete guide!
Plant and Grow Peonies to Catch Ripplewings[the_ad id=”8789″]
When you first approach your garden, Tortimer will speak with you the first time you approach your garden, sharing some of your very first Peony seeds for free. With your new seeds, just tap on empty dirt plots in your garden to plant and water them. When the timer on a plant ends, the Peony will bloom!
When Peonies bloom during Tortimer’s Floral Fancy, there’s a random chance of a Ripplewing creature spawning on top of the plant. Once a creature is ready and waiting, you’ll have to tap on it to attempt a catch. Then when attempting a catch, there’s another random chance of the catch failing. If you do successfully catch a creature, it will be added to your event task counts for special rewards!
The corresponding Peony flower and Ripplewing creature matches are as follows:
- White Peonies spawn purple Plum Ripplewings
- Purple Peonies spawn yellow Citrus Ripplewings
- Part 2: Red Peonies spawn pink Blossom Ripplewings and blue Ornamental Ripplewings
To get an idea of your chances of spawning and catching creatures, see the table below for a summary of the rates for this event:

Part 2 Bonus Hard Tasks
This event features an additional set of particularly difficult Hard Tasks in Part 2, which are only unlocked after completing all other tasks above.
Don’t Forget to Share Your Ripplewings
The essential key to successfully completing a gardening event in Animal Crossing: Pocket Camp is making full use of the sharing features! While it’s possible to play solo, we highly recommend sharing with friends for the best experience.
Whenever you have Ripplewings in your inventory after catching them, make sure to share them with friends! Just open your friends list, visit their garden, and place your creatures on any grown Peonies they have sitting there. After you share, you’ll receive Peony seeds to help you grow more.
It’s important to note that sharing creatures never negatively effects your personal task counts and rewards — there’s absolutely no reason not to share, you can only benefit! Always share as much as possible to help yourself get more seeds, while helping your friends progress in their own tasks. If you can share creatures back and forth with a buddy throughout the event, you’ll make great progress![the_ad id=”8789″]

Trade in Flowers for Potted Peonies, Seeds, Flower Food, and Duplicates
When you’ve harvested lots of Peonies to make room for growing more, don’t forget to trade them in to Lloid the Gyroid to get the full benefits from your hard work during this event. In terms of furniture, you can exchange your flowers in for potted versions of each plant for 20 matching Peonies each.
Flower food is available too if you’re looking to speed up future growth of flowers. And if you want extra duplicates of some items, you can get those here too. Most importantly though, you can trade up lower quality Peonies into higher quality Peony seeds!
