Sunflower is a basic common plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Solar IconSolar class. It costs 1SunPvZH to play, and has 1HeartPvZH. It has the Team-Up trait, and its ability gives the plant hero +1SunPvZH at the start of every turn, starting from the next turn after it is played.

In the Boss Battle of the mission KO at the OK Arcade, Solar Flare starts with a Sunflower on the third lane. Also, in the Boss Battle of the mission Game Time! Flame Time!, Solar Flare starts with two Sunflowers each on the third and fourth lanes.


It is based on the common sunflower, an annual forb of the genus Helianthus grown as a crop for its edible oil and seeds. The fact it produces sun is a pun on its name.

Card description

Not to brag, but I'm pretty much your basic franchise-founding superstar.



Sunflower is perhaps one of the most common and useful plants that you can play at the start of the game. Having even the slightest bit of sun bonus early on can give you a huge advantage, as it will allow you to play higher-cost cards much earlier and force your opponent to play more defensively. Sunflower's value gradually diminishes as the game progresses, however, as both players will have enough sun/brains to play what they want.

Because of Sunflower's value in the early-game, most of your opponents will try to destroy it at first sight. Here are some possible threats that can counter Sunflower, which you should be aware of when playing it:

Gravestone zombies that can move or destroy Sunflower such as Sumo Wrestler, Pied Piper, Conga Zombie, and Foot Soldier Zombie.

Tricks that can destroy Sunflower such as Bungee Plumber, Rolling Stone, and Nibble.

Cards that can move to Sunflower's lane such as Dog Walker, Line Dancing Zombie, and Smoke Bomb.

PvZH Strikethrough IconStrikethrough zombies such as Hot Dog Imp and Line Dancing Zombie.

(Early-game refers to turns 1 to 4 here.)

If stat-boosing tricks are available, you can choose to boost Sunflower to improve its chance of survival, or at least retaliate back. Using Mixed Nuts with Sunflower is an easy combo. If Sunflower is played on turn 1 and is not destroyed, Mixed Nuts can be played on turn 2 and get a stat boost.


Early on, you should use everything at their disposal to take care of any Sunflowers, because they let your opponent play stronger cards earlier and possibly overwhelm you. Against a PvZH Solar IconSolar hero, it is usually better to save your brains for a trick rather than spending everything on zombies, or play a Dog Walker to catch any stray Sunflower.
