Modern Day - Day 23 is the twenty-third level of Modern Day in Plants vs. Zombies 2. Grimrose is pre-selected in this level, thus showcasing it. When this level is finished for the first time, the player unlocks the aforementioned plant.
Grimrose is pre-selected in this level. When powered by Moonflower, it can pull up to three of the strongest zombies in its lane into the ground instead of just one, killing them instantly. However, it cannot pull floating zombies such as Balloon Zombies while in the air. It also cannot pull Deep Sea Gargantuars but damage them instead. The player can use Grimrose whenever there are threatening zombies in a lane such as Newspaper Zombies, Surfer Zombies, and Octo Zombies. But due to its sluggish recharge, it cannot pull enough of these zombies per wave. The player would need to choose other plants in order to deal with these zombies and their abilities.
- The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

- This may be a reference to Grimrose's similarities to Tangle Kelp, a plant obtained in Big Wave Beach.
