Cold Snapdragon2

A similar plant, Cold Snapdragon is a premium plant. He is like Snapdragon, costing the same amount of sun (100 more in the Chinese version) with the same range, but also has a chilling effect in his attacks. Unlike Snapdragon, due to his ice effects, he is in the Winter-mint family.
