Leaf Blower is a galactic uncommon plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Smarty class. It costs 4 to play, and has 3/4. It has the Amphibious trait, and its ability gives the Bounce effect to a selected zombie when it is played in an environment.
Its appearance and name are puns on a leaf blower, a device used to blow weeds and plants away, as Leaf Blower is literally a leaf that "blows" zombies away.
- Class: Smarty
- Tribe: Leafy Plant
- Trait: Amphibious
- Ability: When played in an Environment: Bounce a Zombie.
- Set - Rarity: Galactic - Uncommon

Leaf Blower can perform exceptionally well when used properly. Compared to Jumping Bean, Leaf Blower has an extra 2 and the Amphibious trait, as well as costing 1 less. This means that it can be a substitute to Jumping Bean in most decks, and even a replacement in decks with many environments. Like Jumping Bean, its 3 makes it invulnerable to many destroying tricks such as Rolling Stone and Rocket Science as well.
However, its ability is rather situational as it only takes affect when you play it in an environment, meaning that it becomes less effective when your deck doesn't have many environments. If you want to take this along in your deck, be sure to pack many environments in it as well. Keep in mind, however, that zombie environments can also activate Leaf Blower's ability, meaning you can take advantage of your opponent's strategies regarding environments. Another downside is that, unlike Jumping Bean, Leaf Blower has no tribe synergy, meaning Jumping Bean can easily outperform it in bean-themed decks.
It is a good idea to play this in Bog of Enlightenment, as it will bounce a zombie and gain 2. It will also increase its survivability if the zombie in front of it is not Amphibious, and if you choose to Bounce a zombie aside from said one. Playing this on Pair Pearadise is also a good option, allowing you to Bounce two zombies in one turn without spending a lot of sun. However, only Nightcap can perform this combo naturally.
This plant can easily Bounce a zombie for 1 less than Jumping Bean if the plant hero plays it in an environment. What is more dangerous is if the plant hero's environment is Bog of Enlightenment, as it gives that plant an extra 2 and the ability to Bounce a zombie. You would want to remove that environment as soon as possible with one of yours, but be careful as this plant will still Bounce a zombie regardless when played in a plant or zombie environment. If you need to destroy this plant easily, Cakesplosion or Final Mission can take care of it.
