Small Lotus (莲小蓬; pinyin: lián xiǎo péng) is a plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. Depending on whether it is planted on land or in the water in Big Wave Beach, Small Lotus has two types of attacks. When planted on land, Small Lotus' attack consists of lobbing long-range torpedoes that cause a single-tile explosion. The attack deals approximately 80 damage per shot and has no splash damage. On the other hand, when planted in water, Small Lotus fires a torpedo cruiser. It does the same amount of damage as its land attack but it does splash damage.
It is based on Nelumbo, commonly known as lotus plant.
Note: Small Lotus' damage in-game is Heavy.
