Snow Pea is a peashooting plant appearing in Plants vs. Zombies 2. He is a Premium plant in this game and is 25 sun cheaper than his appearance in Plants vs. Zombies.

Like the previous game, Snow Pea attacks by firing frozen peas at zombies every 1.35 - 1.5 seconds, which can slow their target's movement and attack speed by 50% for 10 seconds and deal damage. However, fire plants such as Snapdragon and Torchwood remove the freezing effect. This trait is shared by all ice plants.


For more information about this character, see Snow Pea.

Snow Pea is available for purchase for $4.99. His sun cost was lowered to 150 sun, but he retained his functionality as in the first game.

While Snow Pea has received a slight buff in the form of a slightly reduced sun cost, overall the sequel has not been generous to the plant himself: Firstly, the increased amount of enemies that can block or deflect direct shots now poses a serious challenge to Snow Pea as well as other peashooting plants. Secondly, the fact that Snow Pea is placed along with other more effective slowing solutions in the premium shop such as Sapfling and Missile Toe means that the plant is more likely to be ignored if the player desires for the ability to suppress the incoming horde. All is not lost, though; the player might still find some use from Snow Pea in his long range and its ability to extinguish Explorer Zombie's and Torchlight Zombie's torch, along with Prospector Zombie's dynamite stick, but this trait is shared with all Winter-mints and Hurrikale as well.

Snow Pea also suffers from outside options, Winter Melon not costing money, Cold Snapdragon being able to hit multiple zombies at the cost of a lower range, Missile Toe being able to target anywhere on the lawn and Stallia being able to work with Fire plants along with being free. Overall, similar to Chomper, they are premiums suffering from costing money while there are better options that either cost the same amount of money to obtain or the player can get them for free.

  • In the 1.9 update, there was a texture glitch for Snow Pea's eyes along with Wall-nut, Threepeater, and Twin Sunflower.
  • He was removed from the store in the 3.5.1 update for unknown reasons, along with Imitater. However, they returned in the 3.6.1 update.
    • He was removed again from the store after Toadstool's release. He again reappeared to the store during the second return of limited-edition plants.
      • There is a glitch that occurs when playing a Piñata Party with Snow Pea. After clicking on his ad after the level and entering the store, he will disappear.
    • This glitch also had occurred with Grapeshot.
  • If the player boosts a Torchwood, and have a Snow Pea behind him, the pea disappears after it passes through the Torchwood, since Torchwood uses napalm fire after Torchwood is boosted, and because Snow Pea is an ice plant.
  • In levels of Beghouled where Snow Pea appears, if his Plant Food ability is activated and then a match is made causing him to fall into another lane, he will freeze the initial lane he was in but he will not do anything else.
    • This leaves the initial lane frozen and Snow Pea firing peas on the new lane.
  • Whenever Snow Pea uses his Plant Food effect, all the zombies in his lane will be slowed down, even before the ice trail appears.
    • This happens with Fire Peashooter, as her fire trail burns the zombies before the fire trail appears.
  • His recharge was changed into Mediocre from Fast in the 5.9 update.
  • Despite being a cold plant, he is not immune to the freezing winds in Frostbite Caves. This trait is shared with Iceberg Lettuce, Winter Melon, and Cryo-shroom.
  • When using Plant Food, Snow Pea’s stem and bottom leaves turn blue, reminiscent of Ice Queen Pea.
