She’s a Shover, Not a Fighter

Pushywillow is a Common Trap Area Effect Knockback plant introduced in Plants vs. Zombies 3. She is obtained by the player after beating Floor 28 of Devour Tower. Her seed packets are more likely to be dropped in Mulchburger Fast Food breakout levels.

She costs 1 sun and when a zombie approaches her, she will push them a certain distance back, as well as all other zombies within her range. She will then disappear after one usage, unless promoted with a taco.

Pushywillow is based on the pussy willow, which is a name for members of the genus Salix which are named as such due to their flowers resemblance to small "pussy cats" before they bloom.

Her name is a portmanteau of "Pushy", referencing her ability to push zombies in her lane back, and "pussy willow", the plant she's based on.

Her introductory quote is a play on the phrase "(I'm/They're) a Lover, not a Fighter."

Despite her fluff, Pushywillow takes no guff.
Zombies who call her bluff will be treated rough
and end up on their duff. She's tough, gruff, likes
when dogs go "ruff!" and knows when enough's
enough with the rhyming stuff.


Plant Food effect

Pushywillow's Plant Food ability is named Fuzzy Fury, in which Pushywillow will push all zombies in her lane back, as well as all zombies in the two adjacent lanes above and bellow her. Fuzzy Fury can be further upgraded to allow Pushywillow to stun zombies that are pushed back.


Pushywillow's Tacobility is named Buddy Up. Which allows Pushywillow to remain on the lawn after usage, allowing her to push more zombies at a time.

Breakout Tips(Quotes)

  • Gigantic Gargantuars pushing you around? Let me buy you some time and PUSH BACK!(Her and Gargantuar's tips)
  • Everyone thinks I'm so cute. But against Gargantuars and Superfan Imps I'm like totally angsty and totally edgy.
  • King of the Grill thinks he's such Hot stuff, but Barbecue Monarchy is so 15th century normcore. Chilling!(King of the Grill's tip)
