The Wither Blossoms Staff is a craftable Hardmode summon weapon that is an upgrade to the Tundra Flame Blossoms Staff. When used, it summons up to four dark-colored flowers that orbit around the player, and fire homing bolts at nearby targets. The bolts travel through terrain, disappearing shortly after hitting an enemy and inflicting the Plague debuff. Each flower consumes half a minion slot.

Its best modifier is Ruthless. The Mythical modifier provides the widest array of stat bonuses, but these primarily affect the initial summon rather than the resulting minion. Additionally, minions cannot deal critical hits. The only lasting advantage a Mythical Wither Blossoms Staff has over a Ruthless one is knockback.
