Bloomerang costs 4{{PvZH Icon|sun}} and has 3{{PvZH Icon|strength}}/3{{PvZH Icon|health}} stats with {{PvZH Icon|strikethrough}}[[Card#Strikethrough|Strikethrough]]. Their strikethrough ability is their most defining feature, but is easily outclassed.
Bloomerang will be the first plant available to the player that can hit multiple targets. It is an effective tool to fight [[Camel Zombies]] and clean up multiple [[tombstone]]s in early levels. Unfortunately, it becomes obsolete very quickly, due to [[Laser Bean]], [[Fume-shroom]], [[A.K.E.E.]], and [[Cactus]]; all of which possess the ability to hit more than three targets, can deal greater damage, and/or attack more quickly and are better suited for the jobs Bloomerang is designed for.
 
*Laser Bean can hit all zombies in his lane but at the cost of 25 more sun.
 
*Fume-Shroom can hit all zombies 4 tiles in front of it, at the cost of 50 less sun.
 
*Cactus, while not as powerful as Fume-Shroom, can damage zombies like a Spikeweed when confronted close by a zombie.
 
*A.K.E.E. can shoot above the Excavator Zombie's shovel, whereas Bloomerang can't.
 
Bloomerang can be used to fight [[Zombie Chicken]]s and [[Ice Weasel]]s, as he can hit up to three targets at once and will have slightly less trouble than other projectile plants, though his slow attack speed can often leave him overwhelmed. His boomerangs can bypass [[Shield Zombie]]'s shield, so Bloomerang can prove to be, to some extent, effective in the [[Far Future]]. This same advantage allows him to fight both the [[Excavator Zombie]]s and [[Parasol Zombie]]s of the [[Lost City]], although not as effectively as other multiple target plants.

*If the player looks closely, they will see that he has nine boomerangs. He retains all nine even after throwing one, using Plant Food, or catching a returning boomerang which is odd due to the fact that when given Plant Food he shoots sixteen boomerangs.

**This, however, can be done in the international version of ''Plants vs. Zombies 2'' if there is a zombie behind Bloomerang, such as a [[Prospector Zombie]], as he will not collect his thrown boomerang and instead let it travel back and hit that zombie.
