When costumed and fed with Plant Food, she can produce either one gold coin and 175 sun or two gold coins and 150 sun.
Sunflower is a very important sun-producing plant at the very beginning. It is recommended to plant as much as possible to get much sun. However, Sunflower faces great competition for the role of primary sun-production plant: Twin Sunflower has been made significantly easier to use, due to the removal of the plant upgrade system and the general ease of obtaining sun in this game as well as having a slightly cheaper sun price, while Sun-shroom costs less than Sunflower and can grow over time, outstripping Sunflower's production capability. This is shared with Primal Sunflower, as she can create 25 more sun than Sunflower, like Sun-shroom's last stage, at the expense of only 25 more sun. Moonflowers planted next to each other can give up to 100 sun each, despite their longer recharge. Of all the four sun-producing plants, Sunflower also generates the second least amount of sun when fed with Plant Food, the lowest being Moonflower. Because of this, Sunflower is generally considered to be inferior to the other four sun creating plants, especially in the Endless Zones. However, they are still useful for 'low-level' players, and some players may not have Sun-shroom or Twin Sunflower. And it is recommended to level up Sunflower because it is the only sun-producing plant available in some certain levels.
Sunflower is recommended to upgrade to Level 4 before using because it can instantly produce 150 sun sometimes, and you can remove it after use to get 75 sun, making it a better choice if you only have a low-level Primal Sunflower or Twin Sunflower. It is easy to upgrade to level 4 by doing Plant Adventures.
