Laser Bean is similar to Power Flower, but with the addition of an extra 1/1 and different tribes. However, it also lacks Power Flower's useful ability and also costs 1 more sun, although the latter shouldn't be much of a problem due to the fact that you can make lots of sun early on with other Solar plants.
Because Laser Bean isn't in the flower tribe, it can't be used as efficiently as Power Flower in flower-based decks. However, since Laser Bean is a bean, Rose can use it in a bean-based deck with Admiral Navy Bean and Bean Counter, as playing it will do damage to the zombie hero and boost Bean Counter. Other heroes also have different strategies they can use. Wall-Knight can put defensive plants in front of Laser Bean, making it even harder to destroy. And finally, Solar Flare and Chompzilla can boost its strength to make it hit even harder.
Laser Bean can both heavily damage you and the zombie in front because of its Strikethrough trait, and its health makes it quite hard to destroy. But due to its base strength, it is naturally vulnerable to Rocket Science. Any other trick, such as Locust Swarm or B-flat should be able to destroy it. It can also be destroyed by The Smash's Slammin' Smackdown. You can play Hail-a-Copter, Deep Sea Gargantuar, or Trickster to take it out quickly, although the former two are going to be heavily damaged after combat.
In addition, reducing its strength using Pied Piper, Nibble, or Landscaper can reduce Laser Bean's damage output if you are unable to take it out. However, playing Pied Piper or Nibble also means you cannot use the aforementioned Rocket Science to destroy it. Rustbolt can play his signature superpower, Shrink Ray, and then play Rolling Stone to take this out efficiently for a cheap cost of 2 brains.
