This article is about the item that can be placed. For the plant that spawns on grass, see Plants#Sunflowers.
Sunflowers in a cave.

Sunflowers are large plants able to stop the Corruption from spreading. They act as background objects like furniture and are obtained by destroying the grass on the block under them with a pickaxe. They are also sold by the Dryad. Sunflowers are not able to stop the Hallow.

Sunflowers can only be placed on grass and hallowed grass above ground. Placing them on corrupt grass or dirt will not work. Sunflowers are 2 blocks wide and 4 blocks tall. They cannot be planted in a plant pot. They also have the ability to spawn more sunflowers in a small area, but the chance is very low. No background walls may be present where the sunflower is placed.

They are extremely useful for changing a corruption biome to a regular one. Use these if you want your world to be corrupt and still have NPCs without setting up a space station for them to live in.

[edit] Notes

Anomaly.png Anomaly: Despite the fact that sunflowers can stop the Corruption from spreading in Hardmode, the biome's 3 tile spreading radius can still bypass them as sunflowers are only 2 tiles wide. The Sunflower itself and the grass under it will still be intact though.
Anomaly.png Anomaly: Sunflowers cannot stop the Crimson from spreading. They will be uprooted (but can be recovered) once the Crimson spreads over them. (As of version 1.2.4.1)

[edit] History

  • 1.2.1: Sunflowers now reduce Crimson’s effects.
  • 1.2: Now stops the corruption from spreading even in Hardmode.
  • Pre-Release: Introduced.
