Petunia giving Mario the Magical Bean

Petunia is a violet flower that lives in the east of Flower Fields of Paper Mario. When Mario first sees her, Monty Moles are eating at her roots. Petunia asks Mario to defeat them so they will not cause further damage. She loathes the Monty Moles, and shows Mario which ones to defeat. If Mario defeats them, she will give him the Magical Bean. In Petunia's area, Mario can find the Red Berry tree.

Petunia feels that seeds should never be planted, because once they are, the plant is stuck in one place. The other flowers call her a "Seed Maniac" for this reason. She tells Mario not to plant the Magical Bean, wanting the seed to be able to move around. Once the Sun is restored, however, Petunia finds his rays relaxing and starts to change her mind about being rooted.

Beyond Petunia's area is a well. Throwing in a Blue Berry causes a Flower Saver Badge to pop out. If Mario throws in anything else, a Crazee Dayzee or Bzzap! comes out.

Tattle[edit]

  • "This flower is named Petunia. She's obsessed with Seeds. She's pretty talkative. She says she doesn't do anything with the Seeds. She just collects them. Collecting Seeds? Talk about a boring hobby! Don't you think so, Mario?"
