For other uses, see Sunflower (disambiguation).

Sunflower is a basic common plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Solar IconSolar class. It can also be made by Solar Winds and Sunflower Seed. 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. This ability stacks with each Sunflower on the field, and persists until all Sunflowers are removed from the field.

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 plant in Plants vs. Zombies with the same name.

While the sound effect heard when it makes sun is the same as the one from its Plant Food effect from Plants vs. Zombies 2, its appearance resembles a little more of that in Plants vs. Zombies.

Its attack is the same as its form in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars.

Its description makes a reference to how it is one of the mascots of the Plants vs. Zombies series.


  • Class: Solar
  • Tribe: Flower Plant
  • Trait: Team-Up
  • Ability: Start of Turn: You get +1SunPvZH.
  • Set - Rarity: Basic - Common

Card description

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



Sunflower is 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 Sunflower's ability 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 you will get enough sun to play what you want.

Regardless of when you play it, try and protect Sunflower so you can keep an advantage. Here are some possible threats that can harm Sunflower:

If stat-boosting cards like Spineapple or Fertilize are available, you can choose to boost Sunflower to improve her chance of survival, or at least allow her to retaliate. 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 each turn.


Early on, you should use anything at your disposal to take care of any Sunflower in play, because its ability lets your opponent play stronger cards earlier and possibly overwhelm you. Against any 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.
