Briar Rose is a premium super-rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Solar IconSolar class. It costs 6SunPvZH to play, and has 3StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability destroys any zombie that does damage to a flower plant, including it, instantly after. This ability persists until all Briar Roses are removed from the field.

Origins

It is based on a rose, a woody perennial flowering plant of the genus Rosa, in the family Roseceae, or the flower it bears.

Its name could be a reference to Sleeping Beauty, also known as Little Briar Rose, a classic fairy tale written by Charles Perrault and the Brothers Grimm.

Strategies

With

By itself, Briar Rose lacks stats for a premium, super-rare, 6-sun cost plant. However, its ability is what makes it shine on a flower-based deck. Its strength stat of 3 also means it cannot be destroyed by most instant-kill tricks like Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, Rocket Science, or Cut Down to Size.

Briar Rose's ability can still destroy zombies that can't be hurt such as Trash Can Zombie during the turn he is revealed, or sports zombies affected by Zombie Coach's ability.

The hero who can use this plant to its maximum potential is Wall-Knight, since he has access to Steel Magnolia, which increases other plants' health so they can withstand more hits, Poppin' Poppies, which creates 3 Lil' Buddies, spelling doom for any attacking zombies in the same lane as Poppin' Poppies and next door, and Red Stinger, which can protect Briar Rose with its high health. Rose can also do good with this, since she has access to more flower cards than any other plant hero; these cards include Snowdrop, Vanilla, Mayflower, Spyris, and Snapdragon.

The more flowers you use with this, the better it gets. As long as Briar Rose is in play, even weak flowers like Bellflower or Sunflower can be used as cannon fodder for dangerous threats like Shieldcrusher Viking, Wannabe Hero, Zombot Sharktronic Sub, and even Gargantuars' Feast.

Against

Briar Rose is a very devastating plant if the field is full of flowers. However, do note that it must be a zombie that damages the flower, not a trick. The best method of dealing with Briar Rose is to use any damaging/destroying trick such as Cakesplosion or Slammin' Smackdown to dispose of Briar Rose quickly. If the option is available, Weed Spray or The Chickening can wipe the screen of flowers, though likely there will be a lot of high-health 3StrengthPvZH plants on screen, so this might not come up very often. Rustbolt can use Shrink Ray on this to remove its ability to fight back. However, its ability can still cause a nuisance, so playing Rolling Stone soon afterwards should do the job. Alternatively, you can also Bounce this plant. If you really have no alternative other than to directly attack Briar Rose and most likely the other flowers as well, it is best to focus on Briar Rose and destroy it in one hit.
