The Sims 4: Death Flower

The death flower in The Sims 4 is a rare flower that is extremely useful for your sims. This is a flower that can be exchanged to save a life when the grim reaper comes around, or can be added to ambrosia to bring a sim back to life. So, obviously this flower is extremely helpful in the game.

To save a life with the death flower you need to have a different sim who isn’t currently dying giving the flower to grim in order to save a life. Just having the flower in your inventory when you die isn’t going to save you. This won’t save your sim forever, an elderly sim who is saved with a death flower will only be given a few days before they pass away again.

There’s a very slim chance that you’ll ever just find a death flower in a park or around the world, so you need to decide if you want to cheat your way to a death flower or if you’d rather graft it yourself.

Get a Death Flower With Cheats

In this section we’re going to talk about how to get a death flower using the buy debug cheat that is really helpful if you’re impatient. The debug cheat unlocks a ton of things that are previously hidden in build mode, like plants and seeds!

To access the buy debug hidden objects you need to open up the cheat dialogue box by hitting ctrl + shift + c on your keyboard and entering testingcheats true, that cheat code is going to allow all cheats to start working.

Then you’ll be using the bb.showhiddenobjects cheat in the same cheat bar and this will unlock the debug options. You can now search death flower in the search bar or build menu in the bottom right hand corner of the screen and it should show up!

Get a Death Flower With Grafting

If you want to go down the harder route to obtain a death flower, you can choose to graft it in your own. To do this you’re going to need to reach gardening level 5 because at this point you’ll be able to take a cutting and graft plants together.

You’ll need to first graft a lily with a snapdragon to obtain an orchid. You can find a snapdragon and a lily inside a pack of starter flowers if you have The Sims 4: Seasons, or you can find both flowers around the Oakenstead building in willow creek, usually.

Next, you need to graft an apple with a cherry to get a pomegranate. You can find a cherry near the children’s equipment in oasis springs, and apple trees are around willow creek often. You can also find these in starter fruit packages.

Once you’ve grafted to get both an orchid and a pomegranate you can graft them together and you’ll get a death flower!

Final Thoughts

A death flower is a great tool to keep your sim’s staying alive way longer in the sims 4. Have you ever managed to give grim a death flower to save a sim? If so, was it totally awesome? Let me know in the comments!

  1. you can also sometimes buy a death flower at the potion vendor in the magic realm. their inventory changes so keep coming back if it’s not there. cost around $1250 to purchase

    1. Good to know. This could be a good bit easier than all that gardening and grafting. After all, I’m a scientist, not a gardener!

  2. The death flower is the last flower I need for the gardening collection. I have one in my inventory but it is not adding it to my collection to complete it. How do I fix this?

  3. Im having da hardest time getting a lily flower I used that tree in willow spot n went to the special place but u can’t harvest lilies there so I cut a piece then added it and its saying spliced plant not orchid nothing is turning I purchased 50 starter pack flowers and 50 seasonal summer flowers not 1 lily flower

    1. Don’t give up you are super close to the Death Flower. You don’t actually need the Lilly if you have the graft. When you used the Lilly on the Snapdragon and created the spliced plant that is correct. The spliced plant will create 10 types of “harvestables” because it’s spliced it will make multiple different types. you can hover over the plant to see the type of plants listed (normally produces 3 but can be more) then monitor the plant until there is a orchid ready to be harvested, if there isn’t one to harvest, harvest all the “harvestables” and 1 will grow soon!! this will be the same when you splice the orchid and the pomegranate together, it will make a spliced plant that produces (orchids, pomegranate , and death flower seeds) harvest the death flower seeds then plant 🙂

  4. Also if you have the Magic Realm expansion pack you can sometimes find the death flower at the potion shop 😁

  5. This is excellent for base game. A couple people mentioned the Magic Realms shop tip also.I have an expoit I use (I’d hate to see patched), to get rare plants on day 2 of a sims gameplay. Rare seeds can be purchased in build mode in certain careers, without disabling trophies on console , using the Get to Work EP. These packs include Cow Plant, Trash Plants, Orchids and yes the Death Flower. This helps unlock items that would normally be locked until certain career levels are reached. If it can fit in a Sims pocket or be stolen you can take the items home.
