Plants are living organisms that belong to the Plantae kingdom. They obtain most of their energy from sunlight in a process called photosynthesis. However, not all plants absorb energy via photosynthesis. They are the main protagonists of Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time and the player's main defense against the undead assailants.


A total of 30 plants return from the first game, seven of which are now premium plants that must first be bought from the in-game store with real money before they can be used. The majority of losses from the first game are due to environmental differences between the levels of the two games. For example, there are no pool levels yet in Plants vs. Zombies 2: it's About Time, so no water plants are present. Additionally, eighteen new plants were added, two of which are premium plants, bringing the grand total up to 48. However, there are four plants exclusive to China in the Kung-Fu World, so including them brings the total to 52.

In the months following the game's release, PopCap intends to add more worlds to the game via updates, and these worlds will bring with them more plants. The following list is therefore open to expansion.

Additionally, a few of the plants not returning from the first game instead appear in cameo roles.
