The Violet Beau is a purely decorative species of flora, found inhabiting a wide range of biomes.  By slashing at the plant with the knife, the player can obtain Violet Beau Seeds.

It is purely for decoration and have no uses in crafting.


The Violet Beau consists of a long, dark purple stalk from which long, slim, highly ornated leaves grow outwards. The leaves have a blue base and bright purple tips capable of emitting bioluminescent glows.

Violet Beau found in the Jellyshroom Cave are much larger than those found elsewhere, suggesting the cave harbours a unique subspecies. The same phenomenon is seen with the Cave Bush, though to a much greater degree.
