For the Legendary plant in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2, see Perfume Shroom.

Perfume-shroom is a mushroom and the third plant obtained in Jurassic Marsh in Plants vs. Zombies 2, and a plant exclusive to the aforementioned world. It is an instant-use plant and an environment modifier which will enchant all dinosaurs in a lane when used and make them fight on the plants' side until they leave the lawn. For more detailed information about dinosaurs and their gameplay effects when charmed, see the dinosaur article.

In the Chinese version of the game, it also makes zombies, including those created by Magic Mushroom, move back four to five tiles, but not leave the lawn.


Its name is a portmanteau of "perfume," referring to the perfume it emits and "mushroom," the fungus this is based on.

While dinosaurs can be devastating when employed by the player, Perfume-shroom's long recharge time, as well as the dinosaurs' limited time on the lawn, mean that Perfume-shroom will usually be more useful for defending the lane against dangerous dinosaurs instead of fighting zombies.

Pterodactyls should be the most heavily prioritized dinosaurs for the usage of Perfume-shroom, as the backward zombies will prove to be much more dangerous than others. Ankylosauruses also should be prioritized because their knockback effects can tear through the lawn and allow zombies to get through. When dealing with raptors, it is best that Perfume-shroom is used as it walks over the second or third column from the right. By doing this, the raptor can kick away any incoming zombies very easily. Using Perfume-shroom when the raptors are far away from the right means that Primal Peashooter's knockback would give the zombies a slim chance of reaching the raptor, thus wasting the charming effect.

Imitating Perfume-shroom will be able to remedy the slow recharge problem and allows it to be used more liberally. Alternatively, using the Instant Recharge upgrade can also let the player use Perfume-shroom in a pinch, especially if two rows of dangerous dinosaurs appear at once.
