Blooming Heart is a seed-obtained lobbed-shot premium plant that was released for Valenbrainz 2016 in Plants vs. Zombies 2 for $6.99.

She lobs hearts every 2.85 - 3 seconds that deal 40 damage per shot, if the target is a zombie, the zombies will be charmed by the hearts, after that damage dealt by all Blooming Hearts increases by 10 DPS each time, up to 5 times. The maximum damage she can deal is 90 DPS.



She is based on the bleeding heart (Lamprocapnos spectabilis), a species of flowering plant in the poppy family. Her name is a portmanteau of "bloom," the name for one or more flowers on a plant, and "bleeding heart." The bloom could refer to how her damage 'blooms' with every hit, meaning that every hit she does is stronger than the last. The heart in her name refers to the fact that she lobs hearts at zombies.


Blooming Heart returned in Valenbrainz 2017. Seed packets for her were also sold in the store for real money. The player could buy the huge bundle, including Blooming Heart and 120 seed packets, allowing this plant to reach level 4 immediately.

During Valenbrainz 2018, she returned again along with the Hot Date.

She became a seed-obtained plant in the 7.8.1 update, requiring 150 seed packets to unlock. She appeared in the store and Almanac on January 28, 2020.

She is tied to Blooming Heart's Sociable Season which lasted from February 4 to March 1, 2020.

Almanac entry

Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.

Blooming Heart



RANGE: Lobbed
FAMILY: Ail-mint

Blooming Hearts lob projectiles that infatuate zombies, causing increasing damage the more that hit.

Special: damage increases across multiple Blooming Hearts.

Blooming Heart loves zombies. She gets guff from her fellow plants over it, but she stands firm. She's into zombies and makes no apologies about it.


Plant Food effect

When fed with Plant Food, Blooming Heart will throw big projectiles at every zombie (5 zombies in the Chinese version) on screen, dealing 200 DPS initially, and increases by 40 DPS each time they hurt the same zombie. The maximum damage she can deal is 300 DPS. Also, if a zombie is hurt by Blooming Hearts' Plant Food effect, it will bear more damage even when hurt through normal attack, which increases by 20 DPS each time, up to 5 times.

Ail-mint effect

When boosted by Ail-mint, Blooming Heart will receive an additional 120 DPS to her initial attacks.

Blooming Heart draws great advantage in dealing large amounts of damage to strong zombies, and deals heavy splash damage when fed with Plant Food. She is well used in tandem with Shrinking Violet, as shrunken zombies are weaker and will take much more damage when Blooming Heart is used. However, take note that Blooming Heart's regular projectile does not deal splash damage. Thus, she is not a very ideal choice in Endless Zones, as when there are large hordes of zombies, Blooming Heart will not be able to handle all of them.

Blooming Heart is not a good choice in Dark Ages, as Jester Zombies will deflect her projectiles, Wizard Zombies will turn her into sheep before she manages to deal heavy damage, and Zombie Kings will keep turning Peasant Zombies into Knight Zombies, thus nullifying Blooming Heart's increased damage.

A great advantage is to use two or three Plant Food in large hordes for the effect of hearts growing in zombies for more damage. This can easily occur using Tile Turnip.

Blooming Heart2.png


  • She, Sap-fling, Winter Melon, Dusk Lobber and Stickybomb Rice are the only plants that have catapulting appendages but do not have the suffix "-pult."
  • Her idle animation involves her winking and blowing a flying kiss to her front, presumably at the zombies (based on her Almanac entry).
  • She is the second plant to have a positive opinion on zombies, the first being Hypno-shroom.
  • According to her sprites, there are unused fire sprites and pepper silhouettes (which may indicate that, aside from Sap-fling, Blooming Heart may also have been based on Pepper-pult).
  • In the 4.4.1 update, Blooming Heart had a bug which made her make the zombies invincible to any damage, even lawn mowers.
    • However, this bug has been fixed since the 4.6.1 update.
  • She is the first premium plant to become a plant obtainable with seed packets.
    • Any seed packets obtained for Blooming Heart prior to that could be used to unlock her.
  • Despite being a lobbed-shot plant, Blooming Heart is not in Arma-mint Famliy.
  • Despite not having a poison-based attack, Blooming Heart is in Ail-mint Family, possiby due to containing traces of toxin in real life.

Specific to the Chinese version (China only)

  • In the 1.8.0 update, she, along with Cactus, made a cameo appearance in an advertisement before being officially released.
  • She, Caulipower, Gold Bloom, and Aloe are the only special-edition premium plants from international version to be world-obtained plants in Chinese version.
