For the version in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, see Gravitree.

Gravitree is an Epic Electric Tree plant introduced in Plants vs. Zombies 3. They hit zombies with orbiting apples around themselves, as well as growing in three phases.

About

Gravitree is the second and last Tree plant the player obtains, being unlocked after beating Floor 18 of Devour Tower.

They costs 5 sun and orbits apples around themself, damaging nearby zombies in a 2x3 area. After hitting zombies enough times, the apple is destroyed, leaving Gravitree defenseless until they grow another apple.

Being a Tree plant, they occupies two tiles horizontally and grows in three phases, gaining more health and apples at each phase. When they grows tall enough, they gain the ability to block and damage Flying zombies.

Origins

GravitreeH

Gravitree is based on the plant with the same name and appearance from Plants vs. Zombies Heroes, the latter applying the most to their second stage appearance.

Gravitree's Plant Food ability is based on their ability activation animation in Plants vs. Zombies Heroes.

Their Plant Food ability's name references physicist Sir Isaac Newton, while their Tacobility name references gravitational force equivalent, aka g-force, a measurement of the type of force per unit mass.

Its old Tacobility name referenced Gravitational singularities.

Upgrades

Plant Food effect

Gravitree's Plant Food ability is named Newton's Revenge, Gravitree summons a massive amount of orbiting apples, dealing a large amount of damage to any nearby zombies.

Gravitree's Tacobility is G-Force, Gravitree gains the ability to slow zombies in their attack range and their apples have a chance to stun zombies.

Balancing changes

May 26th, 2020 Patch

  • Health across growth stages has increased by 200-300%
  • The rate at which new apples spawn has been reduced from a flat 3s to 2.25/1.875/1.75s across growth stages.
  • The number of apples Gravitree can spawn across growth stages has been doubled.
  • The number of zombies that individual apples can hit before being destroyed has been reduced from 6 to 3.
  • Instead of a flat 60s per growth stage, Gravitree now reaches stage 2 in 45s and stage 3 in an additional 75s.

July 21st, 2020 Patch

  • Apples now orbit 40% further away from Gravitree, allowing them to hit zombies farther way.
  • Apples still hit zombies that are within their orbit, so zombies can no longer attack Gravitree at close range with impunity.
  • Gravitree's Tacobility has been completely changed. Used to be Singularity - Pulls zombies from adjacent lanes with gravity. Apples can now stun zombies.

Trivia

  • Gravitree and Dogwood are the only plants that do not have a Tacobility/end celebration animation.
    • They are coincidentally both Trees.
