Since this plant is expensive, place her near the left side of the lawn to prevent her from being eaten. Although she is strong, she only targets one zombie at a time with a very slow rate of fire, so pair her with plants with splash damage like Snapdragon or else she will be quickly overwhelmed.

It is not recommended to use this plant as your main offensive plant due to her high cost and reload time.



  • Her eyes are identical to Blooming Heart's.
  • She reuses some of Fanilla's sprites.
  • Her normal Plant Food effect is the same as Electric Peashooter's Level 5 ability.
  • She is bugged so that she won't attack most of the time when she isn't in her recharging animation.
  • When playing at Sky City, you can't use this plant because on how she makes wind like the Zombot Vulture Fighter but you can use her in the boss fight
