Primal Rafflesia (原始大王花; pinyin: yuánshǐ dàwáng huā) is a plant from the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It was added in the 2.0 update.

Primal Rafflesia lobs venom balls at the zombies then creates a puddle that slows down zombies (similar to Sap-fling). Ten of Primal Rafflesia's Puzzle Pieces can be obtained by purchasing ¥168 worth of in-game items. 30 of Primal Rafflesia's Puzzle Pieces can be obtained if ¥298 is spent, and 60 Puzzle Pieces if ¥398 is spent.

Almanac entry

原始大王花 (Primal Rafflesia)
Sun cost: 450

AREA: Tile
RANGE: Lobbed


特点: 攻击僵尸时 , 会留下一滩缓逮毒液


    In English:

    Primal Rafflesia can launch venom balls to attack zombies and cause slow effect.

    Special: When attacking zombies, leave a puddle of venom that causes slow effect
    Plant feature: purple plant, short stature

    As the winner of the plants' world-ranked "The uglier the stronger" prize, when Primal Rafflesia saw his own weak successor, he could only lament: "Didn't think that my combat power would decrease after I shed my hair, combat power isn't from bragging."

Use Primal Rafflesia at the back lines for maximum advantage as it can provide slowing and decent damage at a reasonable rate. Couple this with some melee plants (e.g. Agave, Rose Swordsman) and you will have a decent combo. Make sure to protect it well with other attacking plants and defensive plants like Primal Wall-nut, as it is quite expensive.



  • Unlike its normal variant, its projectile is lobbed and can only harm one zombie at a time.
  • In the teaser, the Primal Rafflesia's seed packet is green (uncommon).
  • This is the only primal plant that does not have its modern version found in Player's House.
  • Its old Almanac entry was a play on the phrase "搞个毛啦!" (what the heck!) as 毛 also means fur, referencing on how it has lots of fur being a primal plant.
    • Primal Rafflesia used to have the shortest Almanac entry description of any plant within the main installments, being only five words in length.
    • In addition, it had the third-shortest Almanac entry of any plant or zombie within the main-series installments, losing out only to Zombie Chicken's one-word long description and Wild West Gargantuar's two-word long description.
  • It's mouth resembles that of a leech.
