Zombies are always looking at her with a frozen expression.
While it seems weak at first, Snowdrop is a very potent and dangerous plant, and is one of the key plants in a Freeze deck. As there are many options on freezing a zombie, you can boost Snowdrop quite easily.
Each freezing card has their own advantages and disadvantages:
- Iceberg Lettuce is a very cheap card you can play to instantly boost Snowdrop. However, it can't actually do damage to zombies.
- Big Chill is just like Iceberg Lettuce, but with the added benefit of drawing a card. However, it is restricted to Green Shadow and Rose.
- Snow Pea can continuously boost Snowdrop every turn until it is destroyed. However, it can be easily destroyed on the second turn, so it boosts Snowdrop only once or twice in most situations.
- Chilly Pepper instantly boosts Snowdrop and provides additional firepower. However, you can only boost it once per Chilly Pepper, and it is thrice as expensive as Iceberg Lettuce.
- And finally, Winter Melon can boost Snowdrop up to thrice every time it attacks due to Splash Damage. However, it has rather low stats and is vulnerable to Rocket Science.
While there are other stat-boosting cards like Grow-Shroom or Berry Angry, it is not as effective as freezing a zombie. However, they are still valid for you to use, in case you don't get any of the aforementioned cards, or if you ran out of them.
It is also a good idea to protect it with a Team-Up plant like Wall-Nut so that it is able to survive longer in the match.
Note that Snowdrop is also a flower plant. Therefore, while playing as Rose you can use it to benefit Power Flower or even use it in tandem with Briar Rose. When it is boosted it can take a few hard hits while Briar Rose's ability will destroy any Zombies that hits Snowdrop.
Remember Plants' Lucky Number 3 For the Strength Stat? [A Reminder: With Strength 3 (Briar Rose, Power Flower, Metal Petal Sunflower...) means that they are immune to a variety of Instant Destroy Tricks Such as Rolling Stone, Weed Spray and Rocket Science.] When Snowdrop is only boosted ONCE, it will have 3 strength and 4 Health. Means that the only way to destroy it will be via changing it's strength, direct damage and by using Locust Swarm.
Snowdrop has quite acceptable stats for a 1-sun cost plant, and it can become a very big threat if you are not prepared. If Snowdrop hasn't been boosted yet, play Rolling Stone or Weed Spray. If it has been boosted twice, play Rocket Science or Cut Down to Size. If you don't have the aforementioned tricks, you can play Backyard Bounce to instantly remove all its boosts. Deadly zombies are also a good counter since they can destroy it regardless of health. However, using zombies to fight Snowdrop is quite risky, as your opponent can play a card to freeze the zombie if they have any, boosting Snowdrop and leaving the zombie at the mercy of it. Also, don't forget that it can activate Briar Rose's or Power Flower's abilities due to it being a flower plant.
- Its animation and appearance is very similar to Bellflower's.
- This is referenced in Bellflower's description, where it mentions Snowdrop.
- The word "frozen" in its description has a double meaning. The first means "covered or rigid with ice," referring to the commonly used strategy of freezing zombies to activate its ability. The second means "to stare coldly at someone or to treat coldly," referring to how zombies can only look at plants when they are frozen.
