Lost City - Day 9 is the ninth level of Lost City in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. When this level is finished for the first time, the player gets coins. This level is also the only level to feature the Chinese version-exclusive Brain Buster known as Dark Stormy Night.

In Normal mode, the player has to beat the zombies at Level 1.


This level is quite easy despite the fact that you don't get to see the lawn very often. You are given three 0-cost plants, which can be helpful in generating sun in the first few waves and for stalling.


The small number next to the zombie icon means that zombie will always appear in that lane, with 1 being the topmost lane and 5 being the bottommost one.

  • With the absence of Excavator Zombie, using A.K.E.E. is discouraged as it can't damage Parasol Zombie.
  • Start planting Puff-shrooms on gold tiles to generate sun.
  • When the Buckethead appears, use Iceberg Lettuce to temporarily stop it from moving.
  • During the final wave, use Plant Food on Red Stingers.

In hard mode, the player has to defeat Level 4 zombies.


With the combination of not being able to see the lawn for most of the level and leveled-up zombies, the player is bound to level up their plants.


  • Repeat the normal mode strategy, but with a few tweaks:
    • Level 4 Puff-shrooms no longer recharge every time they are planted, and this can be used to stall numbers of zombies and quickly soften them up.
