| Pollen Flowers are flowers that produce pollen, which is used to level up butterflies and to feed and level up the Bee Fly. |
Special Ability to halve the cost of a shift, and the Buff-Tailed Bumblebee can double the pollen created.

They come in five colours: blue, pink, red, yellow and orange.

Low Honeydew Balance – Pollen Overcapped
To get pollen from Pollen Flowers, you must choose a shift, which can be hurried with Flutterbucks.
In order to start a shift you must have space for the amount the shift produces (without having been doubled by the Honeybee) plus 1. The maximum amount of pollen possible is therefore 9,717, achieved by starting six Honeybee improved "Storm of Pollen" shifts while at 5,661 pollen.
|During the Tutorial you are introduced to upgrading Pollen Flowers. Before you reach this step the button will be greyed out.|
| Each flower upgrade will require spending increasingly more Flutterbucks:
Upgrading a Pollen Flowers completely costs 75 in total and upgrading all six Pollen Flowers costs a total of 445 (as the upgrade during the Tutorial is free).
|Once you have fully upgraded a Pollen Flower, the button will be greyed out again.|
The shorter the shift, the more pollen you will get per honeydew invested. A longer shift will result in more pollen, but at a higher cost. (This table doesn't reflect the usage of one or more Honeybees or the usage of the Special Ability to half the cost of the next pollen flower shift.)
|Shift||Stage||Generated||per||per minute||per hour|
| Speck of Pollen||1||1||5||2||120|
| Chunk of Pollen||1||14||4.29||1.4||84|
| Whirl of Pollen||1||35||5.71||0.58||35|
| Flurry of Pollen||1||75||8||0.31||18.75|
| Cloud of Pollen||1||150||8||0.31||18.75|
| Storm of Pollen||1||290||10.34||0.24||14.5|
Spotsexpanding through the forest occasionally you will find a Pollen Flower spot instead of more space for your butterflies. These spots are fixed and apart from the first two flowers they can be unlocked in any order.
The picture to the right shows the spots where Pollen Flowers can be found.
There are five possible colours for Pollen Flowers. The first flower unlocked is blue and the second is pink, however the colours of the remaining flowers are completely random, so there is no guarantee that all five colours will be present in your forest. It is not possible to influence the starting colour of a Pollen Flower, but it can be changed by using a Special Ability.

- When fusing butterflies together, you can save pollen by only leveling up one of the two butterflies you plan to fuse. Fusing two butterflies that are both maxed out at level one will produce a butterfly at level one that can reach level two. Fusing two butterflies that can only reach level one, but are at level zero will produce a butterfly that can reach level two that is at level zero. Fusing one level zero butterfly with a level one (assuming both only have the potential to reach level one) will produce a butterfly that is at level one and can reach level two. Since fusing two butterflies will create a butterfly with a higher potential but the same level as the better of the two that were fused, you should only level up your best butterfly of each species when fusing.
- The pollen cap was introduced with Update 1.85 on 7th May 2014 to reduce lags in the game.
- Since the introduction of the Hairstreak Set 27th November 2014 it's possible to change Pollen Flower colour by using butterflies' Special Abilities.
- Since January 2017 Pollen Flowers can be orange, too.
