For the version of this plant in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars, see Passionflower line.

Passionflower (番莲工程师; pinyin: fān lián gōngchéngshī) is a plant from Steam Ages in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. It attacks the closest zombie in either its lane or the lanes above or below it by firing gears at it. Once these gears hit a zombie, the gear will freeze in place, hitting zombies multiple times before disappearing, similar to Monkeyfruit's bar.



It is based on the Passiflora, a genus of fruit-bearing flowers commonly called passionflowers. In particular, it resembles the Passiflora incarnata, one of the hardiest passionflower species.

Plant Food effect

When fed Plant Food, Passionflower will produce a gigantic gear, before throwing it at the nearest zombie. This gear lasts longer than the normal gear, and does damage to zombies in a 3x3 radius.


It now launches a massive fast rotating gear that can slow down zombies.

Treat this as a cheaper yet weaker version of Monkeyfruit that can attack on the above or below it. However, once the player gets Monkeyfruit, they should use Monkeyfruit over this due its attack power. It also has a lackluster Plant Food effect since it's only guaranteed to kill at least 1 zombie if not timed correctly. However, it can attack zombies in another lane.
