Card description

Gets lunch with Poison Ivy and Poison Mushroom every week. They have a lot to talk about.



Poison Oak does not have the best stats for a 6-sun plant, but still can tank a few hits while fighting back with decent strength. Keep in mind that it is meant to attack your opponent, and can be overwhelmed by zombies of the same cost, such as Deep Sea Gargantuar, Wizard Gargantuar, or Zombot Sharktronic Sub. Therefore, you should consider carefully when and where to play Poison Oak.

The safest situation to play it is when your opponent uses all their brains to play zombies, allowing you to play Poison Oak safely on an unoccupied lane, although you are better off blocking attacks with it if the combined zombies' damage is greater than Poison Oak's damage.

Each Kabloom hero has their own strategies with Poison Oak. Solar Flare can make more sun, allowing her to play Poison Oak earlier and make it harder for your opponent to counter it. Captain Combustible can boost it with tricks like Fertilize or Blazing Bark, making it hit harder, or play Time to Shine on it to either clear its path or do 9 damage straight to his opponent. Nightcap can PvZH Frozen IconFreeze or Bounce zombies in its way, and also protect it with Team-Up plants like Shellery or Navy Bean. Spudow too can protect it with Team-Up plants like Pea-Nut or Prickly Pear, or move it with Gardening Gloves or Bubble Up if his opponent is pestering Poison Oak by blocking it with zombies.

You can also play it to bait your opponent into trying to destroy it, possibly allowing you to play something even stronger next turn with little fear of that plant getting destroyed, or prepare some tricks up your sleeve.


Destroy it as quickly as you can before it ends up doing 9 damage to you. You can block Poison Oak with zombies until it is destroyed. However, the easiest and fastest way to destroy it is to use instant-kill cards such as Cut Down to Size, Locust Swarm, and Rocket Science. Using Fire Rooster along with Zombot Sharktonic Sub against it can also finish it off very quickly. PvZH Deadly IconDeadly zombies can also destroy it in a single hit.
