Rafflesia (大王花; pinyin: dàwáng huā) is a plant obtained in Frostbite Caves in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Its attack usually consists of slowly producing spores that travel across the lawn and blow up groups of zombies. It always attacks the zombies at the back of its lane.


It is based on the plants from the Rafflesia genus which are native to Southeast Asia.

    In English:

    Rafflesia attacks hidden behind the zombies.

    Special: It attacks the rearmost zombie

    Plant feature: short

    Rafflesia is one of the park employees that children love the most. Wherever he is will be surrounded by children. He likes this feeling. "I blow the best bubbles! The children all love to see me blow bubbles!" He says that when he introduces himself to others. What he doesn't know is that while the others are nodding and smiling, most of them are confused: Isn't Rafflesia the one that's in charge of selling balloons?


Plant Food effect

When fed with Plant Food, it releases spores that go on random tiles and explode, killing anything that is on those tiles.


It now releases spores that home to nearest zombies in all lanes.
