The Stone Flower (Russian: Каменный цветок, translit. Kamennyy tsvetok) is a 1946 Soviet fantasy film directed by Aleksandr Ptushko. It is an adaptation of Pavel Bazhov's story of the same name, in turn based on Uralic Russian folklore.

It was the Soviet Union's first color film shot on Agfacolor negative film seized in Germany, and was entered into the 1946 Cannes Film Festival.[1]
