Sweet Potato is a premium uncommon plant card appearing in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes and a member of the Mega-Grow plants. It costs 1 and has 3 when first played. It has the Team-Up trait, allowing Sweet Potato to be played in front of or behind another plant fighter. Sweet Potato's special effect draws a designated zombie to the lane it is played on once it is used, providing that space is available.
This plant is based off the plant with the same name, Ipomoea batatas. Its name may allude to the fact that it has the attitude of being cute.

Sweet Potato can be used to protect other plants, as it can withstand most attacks early on, and continue to absorb at least one hit the longer a game draws out. Sweet Potato's real value however lies in its effect to draw a zombie to its lane, allowing the player to either remove Amphibious zombies from the water lane and expose them to attack, to avoid buffs from zombies like Arm Wrestler, or clear a lane for Anti-Hero or high damage plants to hit the opposing zombie hero directly.
Sweet Potato can be used in tandem with Precision Blast, as the ability to lure a zombie into the middle lane will allow you to attack the opposing zombie for 5 damage, or vice versa, all the while at a minimal sun cost.
Using tricks is the player's best bet to disposing of this quickly. Because of its effect, a zombie most likely will not be able to defeat this in a timely manner. If the opponent has used this on a high health zombie and there are no attacking plants there, then the Sweet Potato should be killed easily. Another way to prevent this is to fill all lanes with zombies.
