Unlocked: Upgrade from Sunflower

Twin Sunflower is a two-headed Sunflower. It gives out two sun each time. It is an upgrade plant in Plants vs. Zombies and Plants vs. Zombies Online, while in Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time, it is unlocked after beating Day 24 of Ancient Egypt. As such it has a slower response compared to its one-headed Sunflower counterpart.


Plants vs. Zombies

To get it, the player must buy its seed packet from Crazy Dave's Twiddydinkies for $5,000. It appears on sale after beating level 3-4, along with the Gatling Pea. It costs 150 sun to plant and must be placed on an existing Sunflower. Twin Sunflower double the sun production of the Sunflower, which means it increases from 25 sun exactly 24 seconds to 50 sun over the same amount of time.

Plants vs. Zombies Adventures

The Twin Sunflower is unlocked after reclaiming The Sunny Lot. Twin Sunflowers still give out two sun each time, but its sun cost is reduced to 50 only and not an upgrade of Sunflower. This makes Twin Sunflower a very effective sun-producer for any level. If the player uses a Plant Perk on it, it will stun all the nearby zombies, in the same manner as Sunflower.

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time

Twin Sunflower is unlocked after completing twenty-fourth day of Ancient Egypt. It is treated, instead, as a normal plant rather than an upgrade of Sunflower that costs 125 sun in this game (75 sun cheaper).

Plant Food upgrade

Twin Sunflower giving 250 sun.

Twin Sunflower instantly produces 250 sun when given Plant Food. Before the 1.7 update, it gives 225 sun when fed Plant Food. Exiting and entering a level, however, activates a glitch where Twin Sunflowers give 600 sun when fed Plant Food, but after two uses, it gives 350 sun by doing so until it reverts to 250 sun; exiting and entering a level again will reset the glitch.

Almanac entry

Plants vs. Zombies

Twin Sunflower
New Twinsun almanac

Twin Sunflowers give twice as much sun as a normal sunflower.

Sun production: double

Must be planted on sunflowers

It was a crazed night of forbidden science that brought Twin Sunflower into existence. Thunder crashed overhead, strange lights flickered, even the very roaring wind seemed to hiss its angry denial. But to no avail. Twin Sunflower was alive, ALIVE!

Cost: 150

Recharge: very slow

Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time


RECHARGE: Mediocre

Twin Sunflowers give twice as much sun as a normal sunflower.

Sun Production: double

Twin Sunflower's super-chic line of ultra-expensive sunglasses has been a huge hit wherever she goes. Due to this she has been unable to travel without being swarmed by the Poppyrazzi.


Twin Sunflowers can be used for later and longer levels that require heavier attacking plants or abilities. They're especially valuable in Survival Mode due to lack of space for many Sunflowers. Although Twin Sunflowers are not as efficient as Sunflowers, they take up half the space as Sunflowers producing the same amount of sun, so are more helpful for levels with large numbers of zombies that require more space for offensive plants.

Use the Umbrella Leaf to protect Twin Sunflowers, especially those in the back of the lawn, against the Bungee Zombies and Catapult Zombies. However, if you have enough firepower nearby, the Bungee Zombies should not be able to survive long enough to steal the Twin Sunflowers.

In Survival Mode, you will need at least two coloums of these so that you can build up your defense quickly.

In Endless Zones at Plants vs. Zombies 2: It's About Time, Twin Sunflowers are your high priority because you will need it more than a Sunflower, but not Sun-shroom though. Because in Endless Zone, the zombie concentration gets even tougher as you go through higher levels. While using Twin Sunflowers solely for sun-production and you want to plant more constantly, simply kill the first five zombies by either Potato Mine or a Chili Bean by placing it four or five squares ahead of the zombie. You may have to use Iceberg Lettuce next to Potato Mine or Chili Bean to slightly replenish the recharge. This trick is good if the next zombie that appears is also at the same row.

While not as fast as it can be like its Mushroom and single-headed Sunflower counterpart, Twin Sunflowers on the other hand can hasten your sun production at the cost of recharge. To bolster the production any further in higher levels of Endless Zones, use Sun Bean, Boosted Sun Bean, or a Boosted Sun-shroom to conserve the Plant Food. For Sun Bean's case, look for a zombie with high amount of health (e.g. Buckethead Zombie.) Feed it, but if you can manage to freeze it with Iceberg Lettuce and feed it again with another Sun Bean, the better it will be. Because not only you'll be able to establish your first Winter Melon or any plant of your choice but you'll also get a chance to produce more Twin Sunflowers. Twin Sunflowers are better tandems with Sun-shrooms and Sun Beans to be exact because the first two gives 125 at first phase, 150 at second, and third 175 sun while Sun Bean on the other hand will give you a high edge of advantage.

A copy of it could also be more useful as it can hasten your time to plant Twin Sunflowers without worrying any further from threats.

Flower Power Achievement

If you plant 10 Twin Sunflowers and keep them alive, you will earn the Flower Power achievement. The easiest way is to get the achievement is to play an easy level. Play a Survival level (not Endless), preferably Survival: Pool, (due to it being a level in the daytime that has six rows) and plant Sunflowers to be upgraded to Twin Sunflowers. It is recommended that you protect them with Pumpkins and Umbrella Leaves. Replace the Pumpkins when and if needed. Of course, use your usual Survival strategy for that level. All 10 Twin Sunflowers should make through to the end. Or you can play ZomBotany 2, because there are three flags. It's better to use six Gloom-shrooms and two Garlics and then keep ten Twin Sunflowers to alive and do not let them get shot down by peas.
