The Iceberg Lettuce is a plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time. It costs 0 sun and freezes a Zombie that steps on it for approximately 10 seconds. It is based on the real life iceberg lettuce, also known as the crisphead.  If a frozen Zombie is attacked by a fiery plant like Snapdragon, the Zombie will unfreeze and continue to move.

Plant Food Upgrade

If Plant Food is used, all zombies will freeze for a short time, similar to the Ice-shroom from Plants vs. Zombies. The Iceberg Lettuce won't disappear however.

Don't get lost staring into Iceberg's adorably cute eyes. If you do, it will be your last step... but only if you're a zombie.


The Iceberg Lettuce is a basic plant to freeze zombies. Using it to freeze a Zombie early on can increase the amount of time to plant Sunflowers. However, unlike other one-use plants or freezing plants, the Iceberg Lettuce cannot damage a zombie. This makes it a zombie delayer, rather than a zombie killer. It's also ideal for zombies too tough to kill with the defenses, such as a Buckethead Zombie in a lane with the only attacking plant a Peashooter. The Plant Food upgrade freezes every zombie, and is especially useful during huge waves, but a waste of Plant Food against lone zombies. Pairing it up with another usage of Plant Food on a plant which hits all zombies, such as Cabbage-pult, can damage the zombies, let the defenses weaken the zombies, and kill most of the zombies at once. Iceberg Lettuce can also freeze a whole line of Camel Zombies.



  • Iceberg Lettuce cannot freeze the Zombot Sphinx-inator, but will slow it down.
  • If a missile from the Zombot Sphinx-inator hits it, it will disappear and slow down the Zombot somehow.
  • If you use Plant Food on it, it will freeze every zombie on screen. However, instead of disappearing like Ice-shroom, it will stay on the lawn. It can be a good strategy to protect it and to use Plant Food on it where there are too many zombies.
  • This is one of the three plants in the series that never cost sun, the other two being the Puff-shroom and Sea-shroom.
  • Snapdragons and Torchwoods do not work well with this plant because their attacks will instantly thaw frozen zombies.
  • In Plants vs. Zombies: Official Guide to Protecting Your Brains, the Iceberg Lettuce is referred to as just "Iceberg".
  • When it is using Plant Food, its costume will disappear.
  • It seems to have the same same costume as a Peashooter during Christmas.
  • It cannot freeze a machine that has been disabled by an E.M.Peach.
  • Iceberg Lettuce cannot be burned by lasers utilized by Gargantuar Primes.
