The Bloomerang is an easy-to-use and a versatile plant, as it can reliably take care of multiple zombies at once. In regular levels, two columns along with a column of Bonk Choys or Snapdragons, and a column of Wall-nuts or Tall-nuts can take care of the zombies almost perfectly. However, one has to be careful that it can only take care of three zombies at once and is not a substitute for a Fume-shroom. Therefore, it is not a reliable weapon against overly massive amounts of zombies. Its attacking power is also quite low despite hitting twice, as its firing speed is half that of a Peashooter's, and cannot kill a Conehead Zombie by itself, and its plant food upgrade has less power than that of a Peashooter, and thus adequate support is needed.
It can be a good strategy to use the Bloomerang when there are many tombstones in Ancient Egypt's levels (especially Pyramid of Doom) so that the three first graves gets two hits at each boomerang thrown.
- The boomerangs that the Bloomerang throws are actually its petals.
- Bloomerang fires very slow at first, then fires at normal speed after firing the first boomerang.
- When this plant attacks tombstones of Ancient Egypt, the tombstones glow red color.
- Its name is a portmanteau of "boomerang" and "bloom".
- This is one of the six plants seen in the trailer of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time while fighting the zombies, the other five are Bonk Choy, Pea Pod, Peashooter, Wall-nut and Sunflower.
- If all the zombies are near the Bloomerang, the boomerang only goes to where the last zombie is and comes back.
- In Vasebreaker, if the Bloomerang is attacking a zombie, the boomerang will go to where the last vase is even though the vase cannot be broken by it.
- In Bloomerang's Almanac entry, Bob Barley is a pun on Bob Marley, a Jamaican songwriter.
- Though the Plant Food upgrade of the Bloomerang will throw ten boomerangs in four directions, all pictures of the Bloomerang (including the animated picture in the Almanac) only show nine.
- There are many references to Australia.
- The projectile is based on the Boomerang, a weapon made in ancient Australia.
- Its friend is a Koala Bear, an animal who lives in Australia.
- The Almanac entry contains the phrase "out back". Outback is another term for the remote areas of Australia.
- Jester Zombie can deflect its boomerang, but despite being attacked by it, the Bloomerang will grab it instead, nullifying the damage.
- If a Bloomerang throws a boomerang, and then the player digs it up, the boomerang with travel back off the screen and hit any zombies it passes. It also cannot deflect by Jester Zombies.
