"A small flower with strong vitality. It was said its downward-blooming flower keeps its fragrance from dissipating."


Violetgrass can be found in the wild in the Liyue region, usually growing off the sides of mountains. It can also be purchased from Verr Goldet at the Wangshu Inn and Herbalist Gui at the Bubu Pharmacy. They each have five Violetgrass in stock between server refreshes, and they cost 1000 Mora apiece. When you speak to the NPC Mengmeng for the first time she will give you five Violetgrass. You can find her near the Bishui Plain Statue of the Seven in Dihua Marsh.
