Magic Beanstalk is a token plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. It is obtained as a card from Sow Magic Beans' ability, but can also be made by Cornucopia or Mayflower's ability, or transformed by Seedling or Petal-Morphosis' abilities. It costs 1SunPvZH to play (only when Bounced or as a card from Sow Magic Beans), and has 4StrengthPvZH/4HeartPvZH. It does not have any traits, and its ability gives the plant hero a card when it is played.


Its name and appearance are based on the gigantic beanstalk in the popular English fairy tale, Jack and the Beanstalk.

Card description

Giant not included.



Magic Beanstalk is a very strong plant for its sun cost, and is able to take a few hits and destroy a few zombies before getting destroyed itself. It is even more useful thanks to its ability to give you a card upon being played as well. On top of that, this plant is also a bean plant, so using this with Bean Counter or Admiral Navy Bean can greatly help you.

This plant goes extremely well with Rescue Radish due to its good ability and low cost, as it allows you to draw many cards from a single Magic Beanstalk. However, if there's a better plant that Magic Beanstalk that needs to be saved, go for that plant instead. It also synergizes very well with Bananasaurus Rex, as it receives a stat boost at a very cheap price, making Magic Beanstalk, or more precisely, Sow Magic Beans, a good addition for a Green Shadow deck.

The only problem is, however, is that you will not get this right away after playing Sow Magic Beans, and you may have to wait a few turns. If you are unlucky, you may get this too late, or may never get this throughout the entire game. Therefore, you should not solely rely on this for your main defenses. Do not rely on this, but you may be able to make a so-called rush deck with multiple Sow Magic Beans, if you keep getting them from each other.


This plant can be a pretty big threat if left alone, due to it having such a low cost and great stats. Its ability also gives your opponent an advantage. While there is nothing you can do about its ability, destroying Magic Beanstalk is very simple. Try to destroy it with zombies with 4 or more strength or the PvZH Deadly IconDeadly trait like Smelly Zombie or Toxic Waste Imp, or with tricks like Rocket Science or Cakesplosion. Do not Bounce this plant unless you are about to win, as your opponent can replay this and draw yet another card.




  • It bears a similar look to Lord Bamboo, though this is merely coincidental.
  • It is the only vine plant in the Smarty class.
  • It is the only token card in the Smarty class.
  • Its description mentions the giant that owned the castle in the clouds that is reachable by climbing the beanstalk in said fairy tale.
  • It is the only card in the game that doesn't have any sound effects.
  • With 4StrengthPvZH for the cost of 1SunPvZH, it has the highest pure strength-per-cost ratio of any card in the game, excluding Tennis Champ on the turn she is played and Mini-Ninja attacking the plant hero.
    • It and Water Chestnut hold the third highest health-per-cost ratio of any plant fighter in the game, with 1SunPvZH equating to 4HeartPvZH. The second highest card is Garlic with a ratio of 5 health for one sun and the highest card is Wall-Nut, with a ratio of 6 health for 1 sun.
