She’s a Shover, Not a Fighter

Pushywillow is a Common Trap plant introduced in Plants vs. Zombies 3. She pushes zombies that reach her back down the lane.


Pushywillow is a Trap plant 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."

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.
