The Chrysanthemum line (菊花系; pinyin: júhuā xì) was a Class A PvZAS Icon Brave.pngBrave plant line in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars which was introduced in the 1.0.51 update, alongside Viking World.

The line consisted of Small Daisy (小雏菊; pinyin: xiǎo chújú), Marigold (金盞花; pinyin: jīn yìhuā), and Golden Chrysanthemum (黄金菊; pinyin: huángjīn jú). They all attacked by firing a brigade of coins.


The second tier, Marigold, was based in the plant from Plants vs. Zombies 2 with the same name and appearance.
