Poppin' Poppies can be used as a defensive plant, especially against high damaging zombies, since they will expedite a lot of damage. The player can use this very aggressively with Spudow since you can use this with Berry Angry to boost this plant and the Lil' Buddies it makes. Playing Spineapple after this plant is a good idea to make the Lil' Buddies stronger. Note that if you are Spudow, you must plant Spineapple before using Berry Angry, because if you use Berry Angry first, Spineapple will not give strength to the Lil' Buddies.

Playing Steel Magnolia in a lane adjacent to Lil' Buddies will allow Lil' Buddies to withstand more damage. Using Rescue Radish with Citron to Bounce this plant to make more Lil' Buddies can also be a good idea. If you are playing as Wall-Knight, Briar Rose can be used after Poppin' Poppies is played, which will instantly destroy any zombie that hurts the Lil' Buddies, as they are also flowers. Pairing this with a Power Flower when the lanes are empty of zombies can heal the hero for a maximum of 10 health, which is half of their max health, giving you the ability to cheat death or ignore hard hitters.

Do not play Poppin' Poppies if an adjacent lane has a Vimpire and nothing is there to destroy it, as it will easily boost itself by destroying the Lil' Buddy and attack the hero with additional strength.

If you play as Grass Knuckles, you can use Poppin' Poppies to activate Muscle Sprout's ability or increase Super-Phat Beets' ability potential and make a more powerful threat in later game.

You can also play environments to benefit Poppin' Poppies even more with The Red Plant-It to make her and Lil' Buddies get a huge boost. Force Field can allow at least one Lil' Buddy to be invulnerable, which creates a decoy. Mushroom Grotto can allow you to make additional Puff-Shrooms to fully defend most lanes for just 1 card on turn 6 or later.


It is recommended to use zombies with PvZH Frenzy IconFrenzy or PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough, especially Vimpire, since it will get increased strength and health from destroying the Lil' Buddies. Hot Dog Imp paired with a Toxic Waste Imp works well, as he will destroy all plants in the entire lane, destroying both the Lil' Buddy and the plant behind it, although the Hot Dog Imp will probably be destroyed in the process. You can also use The Chickening, to destroy all Lil' Buddies and leave Poppin' Poppies at 2 health, which allows a simple zombie with 2StrengthPvZH to destroy it. Zombot Stomp can be used if it causes too much trouble, but beware since the Lil' Buddies will end up in your opponent's hand.

Do not Bounce Poppin' Poppies unless it is causing major trouble, as it will allow the opponent to summon even more Lil' Buddies, making it difficult for the player to break through and damage the opposing plant hero.

Using Vimpire is a good tactic because Lil' Buddies are weak and it is easy to destroy them and boost these zombies' stats. Tricks such as Rocket Science, Cakesplosion, and Locust Swarm can take out Poppin' Poppies itself with ease. This should be used especially if the plant hero decides to boost it.

If you see environments such as The Red Plant-It or Mushroom Grotto, be careful as these environments can benefit this card very easily. In that case, try to remove most of the plant environments before Poppin' Poppies is played.

  • It, Shroom for Two, Pair of Pears, and Cornucopia are the only plants who can make plants with Team-Up.
  • It and Nightcap are only the characters who can make plants by dropping an object.
    • It is the only fighter to do so.
    • However, it drops three poppy buds while Nightcap drops a mushroom.
  • Its name is an example of alliteration and euphony.
    • In addition, both words in its name start with "poppi-".
  • Its "when destroyed" animation is the same as Lil Buddy's.
