The Death Flower is a naturally occuring plant in the End. They will generate on End Stone where they can stay, but can as well be planted on dirt and grass. Unlike other flowers, the Death Flower does not need sunlight to survive.
The place you're going to find Death Flowers most likely at are the Endstone Blobs, where they have a chance to generate in a small patch. They also serve as a decoration inside Dungeon Towers, where they can be often found inside flower pots.
It is possible to plant the flower on your garden or place it in a Flower Pot for decoration purposes. If it's planted outside its natural habitat (End dimension), it will slowly die. At a certain point, it will also start spawning Angry Endermen, which can be utilized to create an Enderman farm.
The flower will slowly die, if it's outside the End dimension (the speed of dying is very random and relies on random block updates). If the flower's health is below approximately 65 percent, it will randomly spawn Angry Endermen, with the amount increasing as the flower's health gets worse. It is possible to slightly heal the flower by applying End Powder to it.
When the flower dies, the area around the flower will turn into some kind of wasteland, as if it was destroyed by the ravages of time. The flower itself will also become very dark and dead looking, and for the last time, it will spawn more Angry Endermen which will never automatically despawn. Very close to the flower, an Energy Cluster is created. It is also impossible to recover the flower from death using End Powder.
Before Release 1.1, the flowers would only spawn Angry Endermen if people were nearby, and die in the opposite situation. The chance of spawning would always be the same, without taking the health of the flower into account.
- When the flower is placed into a flower pot after it dies, it will be slightly smaller than the "healthy" variation
