I think for the first couple days, we should have some people comment which ones they got (if they see this) like it was done for the quarry for the candy canes. That way, we can at least see what some of the possibilities are.
I keep running out of flowers because I keep trying to cross-pollinate so I think for now I'm going to work on harvesting as many as I can and then try to get more rare. I've only gotten three rare and then tried to cross-pollinate with them and they just turned into regular ones lol
seashell92 - thanks for letting us know how to get purple pansies! That's the last one I need.
And, I got blue tulips today from white + purple.
Here's my list so far (including previous posts):
Tulips: pink + black = purple red + orange = pink purple + black = white orange + pink = black yellow + pink = orange red + black = purple red + black = yellow white + purple = blue white + orange = black
Pansies: yellow + red = white yellow + red = orange blue + red = red-blue blue + coral = blue white + white = blue yellow + yellow = coral coral + coral = white yellow-blue + white = blue red-blue + white = blue yellow-blue + yellow = yellow-blue yellow-blue + yellow = coral red-blue + yellow = blue red-blue + red = red-blue red + coral = white
seashell92 - I accidentally harvested my blue tulip! Agghh.... I just tried with 18 tulips on a friend's blue tulip and didn't get a single blue. Phooh!
Tried your combination for purple pansies, but nothing yet.
EDIT - Ahh...I see that you used white tulips. I didn't have any of those, but I'm growing some now. Hopefully my friend hasn't harvested hers by then. Funny thing...her blue tulip most likely came from cross-pollinating with my blue tulip, since she cross-pollinated around 8 times on at least two occasions.
From what I can tell from my successful attempts at getting purple tulips, there is always a possibility of getting one of the flower colors you're cross-breeding. Some might be more likely than others (for example, if you're cross-breeding red and purple, I am typically more inclined to get red seeds than purple seeds because red is overall more common) but it should always be at least possible. The best way to get rare seeds, then, is to cross-breed two rare flowers together.
I haven't noticed any correlation with giving kudos and cross-pollinating, but that doesn't mean there isn't one!
So far here's what I've gotten personally (some of these have already been posted): Tulips Red + orange = pink Red + yellow = yellow Red + purple = yellow or pink Orange + purple = orange, purple, or white Yellow + purple = purple or black Purple + pink = Purple, pink, or black Purple + black = purple
Pansies Red + orange = red or orange Orange + yellow = red, coral, or yellow
I started a spreadsheet on Google docs with these and the results posted in this thread. Feel free to edit if you'd like.
I'm working on a spreadsheet with probabilities for each flower type. It'll be like all the other spreadsheets on here only with numbers, like 96% of the time red x red will get you black (not actually true but you get the point). Problem is I have to do a LOT of cross breeding for my numbers to be statistically significant. I'm currently breeding a bunch of the boring flowers so I can have a lot of them to breed with the interesting ones. I'll post it when it's done!

For blue tulips you need access to a blue tulip. Cross pollinate with any other colour tulips. You want get any blue tulip seeds. Plant the seeds you get and when grown harvest them and cross pollinate with a blue tulip. This should yield 25-50% blue tulip seeds.
