Sun Production: large suns
Primal Sunflower is new to all this sun-giving business, so be patient with her. She's an early adopter of the all-you-can-stuff-yourself buffet style of sun production.
Plant Food effect
When given Plant Food, Primal Sunflower generates three big suns worth 225 sun in total. The amount of sun produced is identical to Sun-shroom's Plant Food ability. Starting at level 6, she will produce 300 sun, and 450 sun when being at level 10.
When boosted by Enlighten-mint, Primal Sunflower's sun production rate will be increased based on her level, and she will produce an additional 75 sun. When given Plant Food, she will produce an additional 225 sun. Starting at level 1, her sun production rate is 4.76-5 seconds. Starting at level 4, her sun production rate is 4.66-5 seconds. Starting at level 8, her sun production rate is 4.56-5 seconds. At level 10, her sun production rate is 4.46-5 seconds.

- Chance to Boost
- Toughness Bonus
Primal Sunflower now has a chance to generate one big gold coin as well.
Primal Sunflower serves the middle ground between Sunflower and Twin Sunflower, functioning identically to a fully grown Sun-shroom both in sun production and Plant Food ability. Therefore, the choice between Primal Sunflower and Sun-shroom is entirely up to the player. While the former has full production capability from the start but costs more to build, the latter is more disposable and can be planted in larger amounts early on, but takes a long period of time to grow. However, in levels which tell the player "Spend no more than X sun", bringing Sun-Shroom is better.
For Endless Zones, the player can bring Primal Sunflower along so that sun production will be faster to set their defenses up quicker. This is crucial in high-cost setups.
