Vanilla flowers sometimes pop up as the daily challenge in Red Dead Online but they can be elusive if you don't know where and what to look for. This guide should walk you through completing the challenge within minutes.
Red Dead Online's Vanilla flowers don't spawn randomly as far as we know and there are five in a tight radius near Lagras where you can pick enough to complete the daily challenge. The entire run should last just a few minutes, except for the time it takes you to get to the swamp in the first place. Lagras itself is located just north of Saint Denis, in Bluewater Marsh.
Anyway, for quick navigation, here is a map of all five spawn points for Vanilla flowers.
The key problem many a gunslinger faced was that they looked to pick it from the ground like they would many other plants. As you can see on the header image, they are actually creeping on trees so look for the vines.
If you still can't find them, we took a few screenshots below, to help you navigate. Oh, and bring a shotgun or a high powered rifle, you might need to deal with a gator or two on the way. The order the pictures will be shown is described with the map above.
Vanilla flower #1 is right next to the road and hard to miss.
Vanilla flower #2 is directly east of the first tree, which you can actually see to the left in the picture.
Vanilla flower #3 is on a thin tree, exactly at the marker from the map above.
Vanilla flower #4 is next to a small bay, visible on the map.
Vanilla flower #5 is almost directly east of #4.
All of these locations are very close to each other so it should be a matter of minutes to pick all the flowers even if running on foot. Good luck and keep that challenge streak up!
