Bloomerang hits all enemies on the screen. Needs Brave Plant Food to activate.
Bloomerang is an easy-to-use and a versatile plant, as it can reliably take care of multiple zombies at once. However, Laser Bean is clearly the more economical choice once it is unlocked, costing only 25 more sun while capable of hitting every zombie in its lane.
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 or Laser Bean. 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 its Plant Food upgrade deals less damage than that of a Peashooter, and thus adequate support is needed.
It can be a good strategy to use 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. Bloomerang is also effective against Zombie Chickens and Ice Weasels. Bloomerang is more effective when planted near front lines as it takes less time for the boomerang to comeback. Therefore, Bloomerangs should planted close to the zombies. Bloomerang's boomerangs can bypass Shield Zombie's shield and therefore it's recommended in Far Future levels.

- In Bloomerang's Almanac entry, Bob Barley is a pun on Bob Marley, who was a Jamaican songwriter.
