Strategies

With

The extra health of the Metal Petal allows her to endure damage better making her useful when healing plants near or at the front lines. The Metal Petal's 160 HP grants her the ability to serve as a good frontline medic that is much less vulnerable to damage than the other variants and is more resistant to ambushes or "assassinations" made by warping Scientists or mobile Foot Soldiers. Be careful when skipping around, as your slower movement speed can make you easier to hit. Try to focus on more close-ranged enemies as her weapon has steeper damage falloff than other sunflowers. She is best played on defense as her higher health allows her to hold ground better.

In the Gnome Bomb game mode, the Metal Petal excels in holding or defusing objectives, as it is coupled with tanking and self-healing ability. 

Against

The most important thing with Metal Petal is to keep up a high damage output to take it out before it can heal too much. A run-and-gun attitude with a mobile DPS zombie like the Imp works quite well, because Metal Petal has reduced movement speed and won't be able to escape.

Also, don't let enemies such as Citron tank for Metal Petal. It is important to prioritize it as it is the healer.
