The Margaret plant is one of two members of the Chrysanthemum family, along with the Creeping Chrysanthemum found in Pikmin 2. When hiding, Creeping Chrysanthemums closely resemble Margarets and use this as a camouflage, pretending to be harmless flowers, and lying in wait for unsuspecting prey to pass by. The only initially visible differences between Creeping Chrysanthemums and Margarets are that the former has eyes on two of the flowers and that it has no leafs on the stems.

Although Margarets themselves do not directly affect gameplay, disturbing a cluster of these flowers may sometimes reveal hidden creatures such as Honeywisps or Unmarked Spectralids.


Olimar's Notes

"This plant's delicate yellow flowers often inspire waves of nostalgia, giving a bittersweet feeling to any who gaze upon them."

Louie's Notes

"Can be eaten fresh out of the soil, but it's much more flavorful when incorporated into a heavenly veggie lasagna."



  • Margarets in real life are acually daisies, similar flower with short white petals. What are called "margarets" in the Pikmin Universe are actually Chrysanthemums.
