Card description

She's got nerves of steel... and everything else of steel!



Steel Magnolia's strength may be a bit lackluster, but its ability allows plants to survive more hits including itself and to ensure longer board control, being a highly effective plant both for its stats and contribution to your setup.

You can use it to boost the health of either a tanky plant that would be useful to take more hits, like Soul Patch or Hibernating Beary, or a frail plant to prevent it from being destroyed easily, like Mushroom Ringleader or Magnifying Grass. Since Steel Magnolia is a flower, Wall-Knight can use it effectively in his flower-based deck.


While Steel Magnolia doesn't hit very hard, its ability is what makes it troublesome. It can boost the health of a frail or badly damaged plant so that it just gets out of destroying range, or just make defensive plants even more annoying. 4 health alone is also quite a lot for the third turn too. It is recommended to bring some high-strength zombies to counter its ability, and since there are many nut plants in the PvZH Guardian IconGuardian class, Squirrel Herder is a good counter too because they instantly destroy them regardless of health. Evaporate, Locust Swarm, and B-flat are also decent choices.




  • Its description refers the idiom "nerves of steel."
  • It is one of the three flowers that are made of metal, the others being Metal Petal and Metal Petal Sunflower.
    • Out of the three, this is the only one which is not a Sunflower variant.
