The Shadow line (暗影系; pinyin: ànyǐng xì) is a Class S PvZAS Icon BraveBrave plant line in Plants vs. Zombies: All Stars introduced in the 1.0.103 update.

The line consists of Moonflower (月光花; pinyin: yuèguāng huā), Nightshade (暗影龙葵; pinyin: ànyǐng lóngkuí), and Grimrose (暗樱草; pinyin: àn yīng cǎo). They all attack farthest enemy by firing flower petals and can go into shadow form.


The members of the Shadow line are based on Moonflower, Nightshade, and Grimrose from Plants vs. Zombies 2 respectively.

These specific plants were chosen due to all three of them being shadow plants that are also flowers.

  • Despite all members of the Shadow line having powered petals, they all attack with regular petals.
  • Shadow line's unique method of attacking is probably caused by a bug, since it's never described in the game.
