Shine Vine amplify the sun production of sun producer plants they're planted on.

Penny

Shine Vine is a vine plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2, that was first introduced in the 8.0.1 update. It boosts the sun production of Sun-producing plants.

About

Shine Vine is a seasonal Arena plant, unlockable with seed packets. It is a Vine plant, and as such can be planted on other plants.

It costs 75 sun and can amplify the sun production of sun producer plants, with the sole exception of Moonflower, as well as producing sun on its own. When a zombie gets too close to it, it uses a stunning sun attack similar to Solar Tomato in a similar manner as Holly Barrier or Endurian. Shine Vine can usually keep immobilizing the zombie from advancing until its death, as its attack rate is similar to its stunning time.

It can also produce sun on its own; the sun production is the same as a Sunflower at Level 1. If a Magnifying Grass is planted in a Shine Vine, as the latter is about to produce a sun, Magnifying Grass will immediately attack, and the sun will not be produced.

The sun-producing plants whose sun production can be amplified by Shine Vine include Sunflower, Twin Sunflower, Sun-shroom, Toadstool (after digestion), and Primal Sunflower. Though Moonflower is also a sun-producing Plant, it cannot be buffed by Shine Vine.

Origins
