For the version in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2, see Plant Family.

Plant Families is a feature in Plants vs. Zombies 2. Plants are divided into families which are mostly there to indicate which plant is influenced by which Power Mint. A colored circle with the appropriate family icon can be seen in the upper-left corner of seed packets.


Each family is named after the Power Mint with which it is associated. There are currently 14 families in the game.

Whenever you plant a Power Mint on the board, it'll do some damage or affect the zombies in some form, then boost the plants on the lawn that are members of the appropriate family. Boosting plants will increase their damage, toughness, sun-producing, and/or unique abilities. With Buffz & Bruisez on, you can use Power Mints to boost the family that is currently having a strong buff. Avoid using Power Mints when their families are ineffective, since not even a Power Mint will make the plant do any damage to the zombies at all.
