Update history

Update 1.22.12

  • Added to the game.

Update 1.24.6

  • Health change: 2HeartPvZH.png → 1HeartPvZH.png
  • Description change: Was originally "Mommy, where do little Sunflowers come from?"

Update 1.30.4

  • Strength change: 3StrengthPvZH.png → 2StrengthPvZH.png
  • Health change: 1HeartPvZH.png → 2HeartPvZH.png



Sunflower Seed is a below-average plant for their cost, having 2StrengthPvZH.png/2HeartPvZH.png. Offensively, Sunflower Seed has no notable traits or abilities and can simply be used as a 2StrengthPvZH.png fighter.

While that is disappointing for a super-rare card, their ability makes them more useful. When destroyed, Sunflower Seed will make a Sunflower here, which guarantees you an additional +1SunPvZH.png the next turn, unless they are confronted by a PvZH Frenzy Icon.pngFrenzy zombie, who can destroy the Sunflower made as well before the start of the next turn. This leaves your opponent with a small dilemma: destroy Sunflower Seed and give you a sun advantage, or keep getting hit for 2 damage with the risk of them being boosted.

Since Sunflower Seed is a flower, they work well with Briar Rose to completely destroy their attacker and leave a Sunflower behind (which is also a flower), and also with Power Flower since the number of flowers will stay the same even if they are destroyed. However, beware of zombie tricks, because no zombie hero will ever be unaware of the Briar Rose on the field.

Sunflower Seed can also activate Muscle Sprout and Astro-Shroom's abilities as well. One when Sunflower Seed is played, the other when it makes a Sunflower once destroyed, making it activate their abilities twice. And because Sunflower Seed makes a Sunflower when it is destroyed, Go-Nuts can boost the Sunflower due to it having the Team-Up trait. Note that only ChompzillaSolar Flare and Rose can take advantage of this respectively.


Sunflower Seed, while not a major threat, is a moderate inconvenience. Destroying Sunflower Seed is a minor conundrum as they give your opponent a Sunflower, which will give them an advantage the following turn.

A way to get around Sunflower Seed's ability is to use a zombie with PvZH Frenzy Icon.pngFrenzy, which will destroy both Sunflower Seed and Sunflower, as well as land a direct strike on your opponent. Vimpire and Ancient Vimpire are especially good examples, as they will get a total of +4StrengthPvZH.png/+4HeartPvZH.png.

Alternatively, tricks can be played to destroy Sunflower Seed and force the Sunflower they make to become more vulnerable. A PvZH Beastly Icon.pngBeastly hero can play Total Eclipse to weaken a Sunflower Seed and ensure that the Sunflower does not survive if the seed is destroyed.

  • The unused "When Destroyed" animation may imply that Sunflower seed did not have its current ability when initially designed or it is made for when its ability failed to activate.
  • Their old description was a reference to how kids usually ask their parents where they came from.
    • Their old description was also similar to Mystery Egg's current description and Graveyard's old description.
