This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Some neighbourhood plants made available for Build/Buy.

Update 2014-12-09: Edited the catalogue tagging some more so that the flowers now show up with the other flowers (not at the end of the section), everything has proper tags for being an outdoor plant, and sims will get their §§§ back when these are sold. I also included a texture override (separate package) for the Shrubby Hedge.



This is done by setting Unknown3 to 0x80, Unknown4 to values I forgot to make note of (look in the packages if you need them), the Build/Buy flag to 0x01, and adjusting the price as desired. Most of them also have a custom STBL since they had rather utilitarian names/descriptions ("plantGCW_groundFlower_01" and the like), if any – ignore the typo on the screenshots, I fixed that. The large "Low-Lying Palm" (inline picture above) also has a custom texture with a little more contrast; by default it looks exactly like the small one that's already in game, on the left of the screenshot. Note that this will override the low-contrasty large low-lying palms in the neighbourhood too.

The flowers will for some reason sort at the end of the flower catalogue (I thought this depends only on price, but apparently not), the tree and shrubs according to price. – Fixed, see update note

Two of the flower pics show the regular wildflowers on the left-hand side for scale (these are not included here for obvious reasons). The rocks on the tree pic are available here.

Updated, see first post.

This is what the additional override for the Shrubby Hedge looks like (don't have a decent screenshot at hand right now -- it's the low-height hedge in the middle):

I love these plants!! thank you!! my only question is, why are the wild flowers as tall as my sim by defalt when the ones in the world are much shorter? Is it a conflicting mod on my end?

If they don't look like they do on my screenshots, the issue could be that they're using some kind of generic rig that someone has edited to enlarge stuff? I don't know, I haven't looked at that since I'm not changing it.

They *are* taller than the garden wildflowers, but not as tall as a sim.

Thank you so much for the quick reply, thats was really really nice of you! Maybe I was just expecting them the same size as the world plants! *shrugs*
Just to make sure i dont have any wonky cc in my game, does this height look about right to you?

Again, I do love them and im filling my yard with them as we speak lol

I don't have these particuar ones on a lot atm, but if you look at the screenshots, there are regular wildflowers and garden planters for a size comparison.

It has been driving me crazy that I couldn't match my garden to the surrounding areas because they used items that they didn't make available to us. Thank-you SO much for all of your hard work. <3
