Rainbow Heal Beam
Solar Flare Beam
Vampire Flower is a Super Rare variant of Sunflower in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Its special attribute is that it regains a small amount of health whenever it hits a zombie, similar to the Vampire Zombie while having a downside of having 75 HP instead of the usual 100. It uses Life Leech as its primary attack which can fire 40 shots before needing to reload. It was first revealed in gameplay of Solo Ops, but was later showcased in a variant trailer on Twitter on December 12, 2015. It was the only unlockable Sunflower variant in the beta.
Being a summer goth takes commitment. Especially when you're a Plant that produces sun for a living. Vampire Sunflower's in it to win it
Attack to convert a portion of damage dealt back into health gained!
- Damage is 7-10 depending on range. 12 damage on headshot.

Heal Beam allows the Sunflower to heal nearby plants.
Sunbeam plants the Sunflower down and shoots a powerful sunbeam that deals seven impact damage and eight critical damage.
With Heal Flower, the Sunflower deploys a Heal Flower that can heal all plants near it.
Rainbow Heal Beam
An alternate ability of Heal Beam, Rainbow Heal Beam does not do anything different from its normal ability; it is merely a cosmetic difference.
Solar Flare Beam
An alternate ability of Sunbeam, Solar Flare Beam is more powerful than Sunbeam and deals 10 impact damage and 12 critical damage. It has less ammo than Sunbeam and takes a bit longer to start shooting the beam.
Play this Sunflower as you would play an Imp. Never stop moving, and be sure that you always have a target to fire at. Stay near your teammates so you can support each other - provide healing while they provide extra firepower. Be careful when rooting in place to use the Sunbeam. You do not absorb health while in this state, and your low health makes you a choice target for knowledgeable players. This flower can also be, ironically, a good tank class, as long as you are constantly hitting a target, making the Vampire Flower an excellent choice for the Flag of Power. In fact, it can practically survive indefinitely in Flag of Power.
- Its Stickerbook description references the goth subculture, which is a subculture found in some countries that frequently involves dark attires, pale facepaint and black hair. All of which, can be found on the Vampire Flower.
- Its petals faintly resemble those of the Dark Flower.
- In its Stickerbook description, the Vampire Flower is called the Vampire Sunflower.
- Its Stickerbook description is missing a period at the end of the last sentence.
- It is assumed this was a programming error.
- It uses two gestures in its trailer.
- The first is a celebratory motion, with it jumping up three times while seemingly saying "Hip hip, hooray!" However, the audio used is from the first game's gesture named "Perfect Zen".
- The second is "Root Spin", done in a manner that resembles ballet, which appeared in the first game.
- Its appearance and abilities may reference how the brides of Dracula are depicted in children's media, such as the Lego Monsters theme. The red and white "necklace" it wears is commonly used in the designs of vampires, and behind its head are two vampire wings and another larger piece that resembles the top of a vampire's cloak. Its very pale face and features also are commonly depicted as vampiric qualities.
- It is the second plant to steal health from zombies, the first being Count Chompula.
- Both are also vampire themed.
- However Count Chompula needs to eat zombies to obtain health while Vampire Flower needs to simply hit zombies.
- It has the lowest health out of all plant classes, only being able to have 75 HP.
- This is likely made up by the fact that it can recover health by simply hitting a zombie.
- It appears to wear a dress or a skirt, as it appears to have sleeves. This could mean that this variant is the very first plant to have a full set of clothing, aside from Rose with its cloak.
- It has a fairly unique reload sound effect, with organ music playing and sometimes emitting an evil-sounding laugh.
- The organ music also plays when the Vampire Flower respawns.
- It is the only plant besides Citron, Rose, Kernel Corn, and Chomper to have teeth, in which it has fangs.
- Vampire Flower is the only Sunflower to not receive a damage buff in the Trouble in Zombopolis: Part One DLC even though Popcap said "Increased all of Sunflower’s damage by 10-20%".
