Sawgrass is a Rare Groundcover plant in Plants vs. Zombies 3. It deals heavy damage to zombies that walk over it.


Sawgrass is the last Groundcover plant the player unlocks, being unlocked with Melon-Pult after beating Floor 23 of Devour Tower. Its seed packets are more likely to be dropped in BBQ Beach breakout battles.

It costs 3 sun and deals heavy damage to zombies that walk over it, it has to recharge its attack after usage however.


Sawgrass is based on fen-sage, also known as sawgrass or twig-sage, large sedge, with a nearly worldwide distribution in tropical and temperate regions in the genus Cladium characterized by long and narrow leaves which have sharp sawtooth-like margins.

Its Plant Food projectiles seem to be based on a circular saw blade (also called a circular saw), a power-saw using a toothed or abrasive disc or blade to cut different materials using a rotary motion spinning around an arbor.

The name of its Plant Food comes from the seesaw a common playground toy that is often characterized by a long, teetering board supported by a single pivot point.
