"I'm sorry, it's just... I have nothing interesting to say."

Vanilla is a premium uncommon plant card in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, and a member of the PvZH Smarty IconSmarty class. It costs 3SunPvZH to play, and has 3HeartPvZH/3StrengthPvZH. It does not have any traits nor abilities.


It is based on the plant in real life with the same name.

Its name is a pun on the aforementioned plant, and the adjective meaning of "vanilla," describing the simplest version of something, without any optional extras, basic or ordinary, referring to its lack of traits and abilities, and possibly the vanilla flavor of ice cream as well, which is also often described as boring and flavorless.

Card description

"I'm sorry, it's just... I have nothing interesting to say."

Update history

Update 1.2.11

  • Description change: Quotation marks were added on the start and end of its description.

Update 1.14.13

  • Set - Rarity change: Basic - Common → Premium - Uncommon



Vanilla has decent stats for a 3SunPvZH plant, although it has a lack of traits and abilities that makes it outclassed later on. If you are playing as Rose, it can provide a use in conjunction with Briar Rose and Power Flower. Because of its stats, it is immune to a variety of instant-kill cards such as Rolling Stone, Weed Spray, and Rocket Science, the only exception being Slammin' Smackdown.

If you are playing as Nightcap or Citron, however, then Sportacus may be a better option to use if you have access to it, as it has the same class, stats and cost as Vanilla, but with different tribes that each character can synergize it with (the mushroom tribe for Nightcap and the nut tribe for Citron) and a powerful ability.


This plant is relatively harmless, but early on in the game, it can prove to be a moderate threat due to its somewhat above-average stats for a 3SunPvZH plant. In addition, the two aforementioned flowers can make this more formidable. The best way to dispose of this is to use something cheap, but strong at the same time. Tennis Champ and Cuckoo Zombie destroy this with ease. If you are desperate, tricks are an alternative way to get rid of this plant.

Electrobolt is the best counter to this plant, since it can do enough damage to destroy this plant and is also cheaper. As The Smash, you can use Pied Piper or Nibble to lower its stats, so that Vanilla is within the range of Rolling Stone and Weed Spray. You can also use Slammin' Smackdown, although there will most likely be better targets for it.




  • Before update 1.2.11, its description was grammatically incorrect, since its description is a quote from it, but there were no quotation marks at the start or end of the description.
  • It, Banana Split and Half-Banana are the only plants that attack zombies with ice cream.
    • Out of the three, Vanilla is the only one that is not in the PvZH Mega-Grow IconMega-Grow class.
    • It is also the only one that is not in the banana tribe.
    • Coincidentally, they all fire the same projectile when attacking.
  • Its description is a reference to the fact that it does not have any traits nor abilities.
