Galactic gardens update
Galactic Gardens is the first set of cards released by an update in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes. The update introduces 100 new cards, along with new traits and types of cards. It was released on June 8, 2017 for Android and on June 9 for iOS.

New traits and effects

  • Conjure - This effect gives the Plant/Zombie Hero a random card from a chosen card type. An example of this previously used would be Eureka, which now has the Conjure effect.
  • DoubleStrikeAltDouble Strike - Exclusive to Plants. Any Plant with this trait does a Bonus Attack after combat, but only if it survives the fight phase. An example of this previously used would be a Repeater or Bananasaurus Rex. Both now have the Double Strike trait.
  • Hunt - Any fighter with this trait moves to the lane where an enemy fighter is played, unless that lane is occupied. An example of this previously used would be the Dog Walker, which now has the Hunt trait.
