For a plant costing 5 sun, Whipvine is quite a decent plant given its raw stats. But thanks to its ability, Whipvine can also get you out of a tricky situation, or maybe just deal some free damage to the zombie hero. It can be used to move a zombie into a lane with another plant such as Potato Mine or Wall-Nut for stalling, or move a zombie away to make way for an Anti-Hero plant. It can even be used to force a zombie to attack another plant to your tactical advantage (e.g. when there is a Briar Rose and you want a zombie to hurt a flower to get rid of it).
Being a pretty strong plant, it is difficult to destroy, especially since it can move one of your zombies around.
If you wish to get rid of Whipvine, you can use tricks such as Rocket Science or Locust Swarm to destroy it quickly. Cut Down to Size is an especially cheap option if you are playing as Super Brainz or Rustbolt. Hail-a-Copter can be used to destroy this plant in struggling situations, though Copter Commando tends to be destroyed as well in the process.
