A Wither Rose is a unique flower with negative properties. Any player or mob that goes near it will be granted the wither effect, a status effect similar to poison. Wither skeletons and Withers also give you the wither effect.


Wither Roses cannot be obtained when playing on the peaceful difficulty in Survival. They can only be obtained either from the Creative inventory or when the Wither kills a mob (depending on the location the mob was when it was killed by the Wither). You can also obtain it from commands, as long as cheats are enabled on your world/server, using /give [playername] wither_rose [qty of item].


Wither Roses can be used to create black dye. It can also be used as an ingredient in creating suspicious stew, but it will give the stew the wither effect when consumed. It can also be used as a defense if placed strategically.


Wither Roses can be used as traps, as they can be placed on any solid block (with a few exceptions). The wither rose can also be placed around a player's base as a defense for your own base against players and unwelcome mobs, and also can be used as a prank for enemy players. 


Wither Roses may possibly be used as a semi-automatic mob farm, since entities take damage when walking through the Roses. Oddly enough, these Roses can still be pollinated and bred to bees. While feeding them the flower itself will not have any effect, bees will still get damaged from the Rose when pollinating it.
