The Gold Rose is probably the most difficult flower to get in Animal Crossing New Horizons in terms of actual work necessary. This multi-step process is a doozy but will be worth it once your island is covered in gold. Here’s how to get a Gold Rose in Animal Crossing New Horizons.
A Gold Watering Can is necessary for the breeding of Gold Roses to occur, so getting a 5-Star Rating for your island is the first step.

Once you have gotten that rating, Isabelle will hand over the DIY recipe for the Gold Watering Can for all your hard work. After that, all you need to do is craft it.
The Gold Watering Can requires one watering can and one gold nugget. From there you can begin the lengthy breeding process that will be necessary to get the Gold Rose.

Now that you have the necessary tool, it’s time to start planting. You start with a set of red roses—the more the merrier!
In order to properly place your roses, they either need to be placed directly next to each other or diagonally from one another.
A red rose plus a red rose should produce a black rose. Sometimes more red roses can spawn, so allowing yourself plenty of time and space to make this easier is definitely recommended. Water them daily (or just wait for rainy days to do the work for you) so that the crossbreeding can happen.
After you get a few black roses, you can place them in the same pattern you have chosen to allow for breeding as you did the red roses. These black roses will produce the gold rose you want, but can only happen once watered with the Gold Watering Can.
With time and patience, you will eventually get that Gold Rose you have been working towards!
