The Original Sneeze Guard on the Yard

Ragweed is a Rare Scrapper plant introduced in Plants vs. Zombies 3. It costs 3 sun and "sneezes" on nearby zombies, dealing damage and having a 25% chance to knock them back one tile.



Ragweed is based on the ragweed plant, a flowering plant in the genus Ambrosia found in tropical and subtropical regions of the Americas.

Its design is also based on a handkerchief, a type of rag that is often sneezed into, reflected by its name and abilities.

Its Plant Food name "Gesundheit!" is the German word for "health" (and the response to sneezing in German)

Its Tacobility name is a pun of the phrase "not a problem."

Plant Food effect

Ragweed's Plant Food ability is named Gesundheit!. When used, Ragweed will let out an enormous sneeze, pushing all zombies in its lane back.


Ragweed's Tacobility is Snot a Problem, which allows Ragweed fire out snot when it sneezes, which stuns zombies that it hits. This can be upgraded to allow the snot to deal more damage.


Ragweed's damage and range is low, so it is normally a shorter range Peashooter. However, it has a 25% chance to knock zombies back by three spaces.

Similarly to other plants with chances to use a special attack, Ragweed should be supported with some long-ranged Shooter plants. Due to its low health and low damage for a Scrapper plant, it is also suggested to use Wall plants to protect Ragweed.

Ragweed's Plant Food ability, however, is very effective. Due to its ability to damage and push back all zombies in its lane 3 tiles back, it can wipe out swarms and push away the zombies when they are being overwhelmed.

Its Tacobility gives it a stunning attack, along with its knockback. This can be very effective, but its low damage and slow attack speed still leave Ragweed a bit dependent on its knockback to survive.
