Primal Sunflower is the fourth plant obtained in Jurassic Marsh. She is the primal version of Sunflower. She produces 75 sun instead of 50. A slight downside to that is she also costs 25 more sun than her modern counterpart.
SUN COST: 75
SUN PRODUCTION: Large
Primal Sunflowers pop out large suns instead of regular ones.
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.

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 the level which tells the player "No spend more X suns", bringing in the Sun-Shroom is better.
For Endless Zones, the player can bring Primal Sunflower along so that the sun production would be faster and would be more conserving to set their defenses up quicker. This is crucial in high-cost setups.
