Party Thyme is a premium rare plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the Mega-Grow class. It costs 1 to play, and has 2/1. It does not have any traits, and its ability gives the plant hero a card every time a plant does a bonus attack, including itself. This ability persists until all Party Thyme are removed from the field.
Its name is a portmanteau of the famous phrase "party time," referring to its birthday hat and cake, and "thyme," the real-life plant this is based on.

Party Thyme doesn't have the best stats for a 1-sun cost plant, but its ability can make up for them. If you manage it well, Party Thyme can supply you with enough cards for you to easily outlast your opponent, while your plants' bonus attacks sweep zombies. As mentioned in the first sentence, Party Thyme is very cheap, so it shouldn't be so hard to run it with other cards.
Party Thyme synergizes with all bonus attack cards, each in a certain way:
- Time to Shine is the cheapest card that synergizes with this. However, it has no additional benefits unlike the latter cards.
- Repeater and Bananasaurus Rex basically give you a card each turn due to their abilities, even if they have no strength. However, you can only get 1 card per turn this way, and none if the former 2 are destroyed after combat. Bananasaurus Rex is more potent as it synergizes with Potted Powerhouse, unlike Repeater.
- Re-Peat Moss guarantees you a card per trick used, which is more stable than Repeater or Bananasaurus Rex. However, you need to have a trick card in order to use this combo.
- Plant Food boosts the stats of a plant, on top of making it do a bonus attack. Along with Bananasaurus Rex, it can be used in tandem with Potted Powerhouse as well, although it is a bit expensive.
- And finally, Espresso Fiesta become even more potent as you are able to not only wreak havoc upon your opponent, but also draw 3 cards as well. However, it is very expensive, so you must use it on a potentially strong plant.
But since Party Thyme is very easy to destroy due to its low health, you may want to boost its stats or protect it from damage. You also need to watch out for Bonus Track Buckethead, since his ability will nullify all bonus attacks, making Party Thyme's ability useless.
Party Thyme is weak, but is possibly dangerous if your opponent runs a deck specialized in drawing cards. Nonetheless, letting your opponent draw cards is bad for you.
You would generally want to destroy Party Thyme before it can activate its ability. While this may not seem hard, remember that your opponent plays tricks before you do, which means by the time you play tricks to destroy it, your opponent would've already drawn enough cards to get them going for a few turns. Playing zombies with "When played" abilities that damage or destroy plants are the best counter, as they can destroy Party Thyme before it can activate its ability. Due to its low health, it is best to use Pied Piper, Conga Zombie, or Bungee Plumber on it.
If possible, use Bonus Track Buckethead since his presence makes the opponent unable to do bonus attacks, making Party Thyme's ability useless.
- This is the second plant that is based on thyme, the first being Thyme Warp.
- Despite the fact that both Thyme Warp and Party Thyme are both based on thyme, they have very different appearances, as Party Thyme is a bundle of thyme.
- Coincidentally, they do not appear in the same game.
- Despite this plant having a party theme, it does not have the party tribe.
- This is possibly because party is a zombie tribe.
