Flame Mushroom (烈焰菇; pinyin: lièyàn gū) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He launches fireballs at zombies. Similarly to Sun-shroom, Strawburst and his ice counterpart, Freeze Mushroom, he grows after a certain amount of time in three stages, and his attacks become stronger in each stage.

Almanac entry

烈焰菇 (Flame Mushroom)
Sun cost: 225



烈焰菇最讨厌夏天, 困为他练习法术的时候会困为太热而流太多的汗。 更倒霉的是他家的空调老困为温度太高而坏掉, 每当此时他就会无比羡慕他的同胞兄弟寒冰菇。

    In English:

    Flame Mushroom grows with the release of his increasingly powerful magic attack in front of the zombies.

    Plant feature: orange-red plant, healthy and strong, mushroom family, mysterious mage

    Flame Mushroom hates summer the most. The reason is that it's so hot that he sweats too much while practicing the Edge Method Skills during summer. The more unlucky thing is that the air conditioner at his home often breaks down because of the high temperature. At this moment, he really admires Freeze Mushroom, his twin brother.


Plant Food effect

When fed Plant Food, the Flame Mushroom instantly grows to full size, and then burns a random column for ten seconds. Any zombie that steps on the fire will be trapped in it and damaged.


It explodes and deals damage in a 1x1 area when the fire ends.

Flame Mushroom is an overall good offensive plant. He is quite weak during his early stages, as he has a considerable weak firepower for a plant that costs 225 sun. Plant Food can be used on him to boost his growth and eliminate incoming zombies. Do note that a grown-up Flame Mushroom is vulnerable to zombie attacks, since they take some time to grow to full size.

Flame Mushroom2


  • He is one of five plants to grow over time, the others being Sun-shroom, Freeze Mushroom, Strawburst, and Kiwibeast.
    • With each stage his appearance changes (unlike Freeze Mushroom). He shares this trait with Strawburst and Kiwibeast.
  • His cap resembles a wizard's hat. He shares this trait with the Freeze Mushroom.
  • He, Freeze Mushroom, Chester Chomper, Shamrockstar, Water Chestnut, and Soul Patch are the only plants with facial hair. Tall-nut, Starfruit, Dandelion, and Oak Archer also have facial hair via their costumes.
  • When he is fully grown, fire will spin around him and his projectiles come from sky instead of shooting them.
  • His sun cost was going to be 85 sun, which would have meant that he was going to be the second plant that did not have a sun cost with a multiple of 25, the first being Durian.
  • Before the 1.3.2. update, Flame Mushroom did not reverse ice effects, unlike other fire plants.
  • He, Rose Swordsman, Pretty Little PlumJack O' Lantern, Angel Starfruit, and Match Flower Boxer are the only plants with the sun cost of 225.
  • His almanac entry references the "E.D.G.E. Method," a common technique used to teach skills in the Boy Scouts.
  • He, Freeze Mushroom and Magic Mushroom are the only mushrooms exclusive to the Chinese version.
    • They are also the only mushrooms that use magic to attack.
