farmville-flowersIt will certainly be a happy weekend over at our farms in FarmVille since developers Zynga are preparing to introduce even more goodies after the release of the Dairy Farms. I am talking about new harvestable crop – delightful and great looking crop, too: flowers!

Starting right now, you can purchase Daffodils, Tulips, Roses, Lavenders and Lillies from the Market and you have a screenshot of the flowers in the upper left corner, if you wish to check them all out. The flowers are rather expensive to plant, but I believe that the profits are really nice – so it appears at a first glimpse…

This addition, together with the introduction of more colored hay bales and topiaries mean that those who aren’t playing the FarmVille game for the “farming” part but rather for simple, plain fun, or having the best looking farm around, will finally have a chance to express their true feelings planting roses and tulips, lilies and lavenders (because personally I dislike daffodils).

However, with more and more options to choose from, FarmVille might become “too much” for some people. What do you say? Is the introduction of new items great and Zynga should keep it up or there’s a limit? Share your opinion in the comment section below!

UPDATE: I almost forgot! The introduction of flowers in FarmVille has resulted in the introduction of a new ribbon: Flower Power – the first level being relatively easy to achieve with only 30 flowers needed. Another welcomed addition, as I was kind of running low on ribbons.

Special offer: A complete FarmVille guide can be purchased right now fur just $27. It would certainly put an end to all your problems. Click the link to check it out!

  1. Hi,
    I’ve done the math on the first 3 new flowers and I’m not overwhelmed…

    The only one that I even would consider if I had not passed level 12 is the red tulips due to the growing time of only 1 day. The way by dividing profit by hours to get a profit index gives only 3.0 coins/hour. This is equivalent to rice. The other two has a lower index because the longer growing time.

    I have not found information about the Lavender or Lilies to calculate those yet, but will do so a.s.a.p. I’m only at level 27 – ugh!

  2. The numbers for flower power is calculated. The good old Sunflowers are the next best flower at a profit index rating of 7,17. The best is Lavender on 9,09 and this is one of the best crops ever!

    Daffodils:
    Profit index 1,30
    Experience index 0,07
    Time to grow 2 days

    Red tulips:
    Profit index 3,00
    Experience index 0,13
    Time to grow 1 day

    Pink roses:
    Profit index 2,59
    Experience index 0,07
    Time to grow 2 days

    Sunflowers:
    Profit index 7,17
    Experience index 0,13
    Time to grow 1 day

    Lavender:
    Profit index 9,09
    Experience index 0,13
    Time to grow 1 day

    Lilies:
    Profit index 3,46
    Experience index 0,07
    Time to grow 2 days

    The data is calculated using my own farmville harvest calculator at http://farmer.netne.net/simulator.php that has been a good help for me to gain XP, coins and levels! But it’s just in a poor beta state right now. I’ve used it to optimize my ROI and XP’s. It will also calculate time to wither and when your crop will go waste. Try it!

    By the way, the new crop, Ghost chili’s numbers are as follows:
    Profit index 6,83
    Experience index 0,33
    Time to grow 6 hours

  3. I’m not sure how t put my flowers on my farm, I’ve grown so many, but where do they go when I harvest them? I’ve been told their not sold, so where did they go?
