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

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 allows 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 get enough sun/brains to play what they want.
Because of Sunflower's value in the early-game, most of your opponents are going to 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, and Conga 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.
- Strikethrough zombies such as Hot Dog Imp and Line Dancing Zombie.
If stat-boosing cards like Spineapple or Fertilize 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. In combination with Briar Rose, Sunflower can make your opponent think twice before targeting, and probably destroying it. If Power Flower is on the field, you can be healed more at the start of every turn.
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 Solar 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.
