Bombard-mint is a Power Mint plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When planted, she sets off three explosions on open tiles, with the number of explosions increasing as she is upgraded. She can boost Bombard-mint Family plants by increasing their damage and other stats, increasing the effect of their abilities. Bombard-mint Family plants include:
- Cherry Bomb
- Escape Root
- Potato Mine
- Primal Potato Mine
Like other Power Mints, she cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. After 6 seconds (at level 1), Bombard-mint will disappear.
Bombard-mint’s name is a portmanteau of the words “bombardment”, the act of bombarding, referring to her ability to create explosions and “mint”, the real-life plant on which she is based.
Bombard-mint is best used when you have several explosive plants. A Cherry Bomb, Grapeshot, or Explode-O-Nut can instantly destroy Gargantuars once boosted. Bombard-mint can also be played alone to create several explosions on the board. Her explosions can effectively wipe out many zombies on the board, as they will deal damage equal to a Cherry bomb, while spawning three or more explosions. Bombard-mints explosions require open tiles on the board for proper targeting, so if the player is using Spikeweed, Spikerock, or Spear-mint, plants in the front-most tiles should be dug up for the explosions to hit the zombies.
Note: The stats shown below only apply to Level 1.

"Explosions are fun," says Bombard-mint with an impish twinkle in her eye. "In the context of eliminating zombies, a cascade of detonations not only clears much of the board, but leaves a lovely fragrance in its wake. It smells like... victory."
