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


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

    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, and the kids love it!" He always say that as a introduction. Unbeknownst to him while they are giving a nod and a smile, most of them are confused: Isn't he a balloon seller?


Plant Food effect

When fed with Plant Food, he releases spores that go on random tiles and explode, dealing 500 damage.


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

As he is expensive, targets the zombie furthest from the house, and attacks slowly, he is outclassed by many plants like Melon-pult. One can use him against stationary or slow moving zombies like Imp Cannon or Archmage Zombie as he can easily hit them behind the horde, but even then, due to being so slow, they can easily wreck havoc upon your defenses before Rafflesia can even heavily damage them. In general, this plant is really weak. However, using him in conjunction with Iceberg Lettuce against one final tough zombie on the lane, it is very unlikely your defenses will fall to that zombie.

  • When hitting a zombie he uses Potato Mine's explosion animation.
