Cowardly Thorns (胆小荆棘; pinyin: dǎn xiǎo jīngjí) is a plant from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It was added in the 2.0 update. It can absorb about 15 bites and can protect nearby plants from being stomped by a brontosaurus. However, it can only protect the plants from the brontosaurus once and will be taken away afterwards.

It should be planted in a manner similar to how Umbrella Leaf is placed in the first game. The Brontosaurus can ruin defenses in Jurassic Marsh, so bringing this along in every level with them is essential. Since it is free to use, defensive, and available in all worlds, it can also be used as a free zombie staller (except in Sky City).



  • When it is about to be stomped on by a brontosaurus and its animation plays, it cannot be dug up.
  • Although it is not an instant use plant, it does not have a Plant Food ability.
