The official name of this plant is Fanilla. However, a literal translation can be found in its infobox. The official name is to be used on all pages that refer to this plant.
Not to be confused with Vanilla, or a similiar-looking plant, Shadow Vanilla.

Fanilla ( 吹风荚兰; pinyin: chuīfēng jiálán) is a plant from Steam Ages in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He attacks all zombies in his lane with a wind that deals 40 damage per shot. After attacking several times, Fanilla will release a small tornado that will stop at the first zombie it encounters, stuning any zombie in its area and dealling damage over time for a few seconds before disappearing. His tornado also stops Gentleman Zombie's flight and makes him drop to the ground. Both of his attacks will also cause Leaper Zombie to drop to the ground.



He is based on the vanilla orchid, likely the flat-leaved vanilla (Vanilla planifolia).

His name is a portmanteau of “fan” and “vanilla”.

Plant Food effect

Fanilla creates a tornado that moves diagonally to the front, changing directions when colliding with the top or bottom lanes. He can blow up to five zombies in his way, regardless of health or level. However it will be instantly destroyed when hitting a Gargantuar, mechanical zombie or boss, instead dealing heavy damage.


When costumed, Fanilla makes a cold tornado that chills Gargantuars and mechanical enemies.

The main purpose of Fanilla is to counter flying Gentleman Zombie. However, he's outclassed by Blover due to faster recharge and lower sun cost. This plant needs upgrading for better firepower. Fanilla has a slow rate of fire and low damage but he can attack through multiple enemies and also he's cheap, so it's useful against Chicken Wrangler Zombie and Weasel Hoarder. Due to his slow recharge it is recommended to use Imitater. Small tornado that Fanilla summons every fifth attack should be used like Monkeyfruit's or Passionflower's attack which also stops zombies.


Plants vs. Zombies 2: Summon


  • His costume is related to costumed Plant Food effect because both of them are related to the theme of snow and chill.
