Vampire Flower is a Super Rare variant of Sunflower in Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2. Her special attribute is that she regains a small amount of health whenever she hits a zombie, similar to the Vampire Zombie while having a downside of having 85 HP instead of the usual 110. She uses Life Leech as her primary attack which can fire 30 shots before needing to reload. She was first revealed in the gameplay of Solo Ops but was later showcased in a variant trailer on Twitter on December 12, 2015. She was the only unlockable Sunflower variant in the beta.
Her Stickerbook description references the goth subculture, which is a subculture found in some countries that frequently involves dark attires, pale facepaint and black hair. All of which, can be found on the Vampire Flower.
Her appearance and abilities may reference how the brides of Dracula are depicted in children's media, such as the Lego Monsters theme. The red and white "necklace" she wears is commonly used in the designs of vampires, and behind her head are two vampire wings and another larger piece that resembles the top of a vampire's cloak. Her very pale face and features also are commonly depicted as vampiric qualities.
Being a summer goth takes commitment. Especially when you're a Plant that produces sun for a living. Vampire Sunflower's in it to win it

Heal Beam allows the Sunflower to heal nearby plants.
Sunbeam plants the Sunflower down and shoots a powerful sunbeam that deals seven impact damage and eight critical damage.
With Heal Flower, the Sunflower deploys a Heal Flower that can heal all plants near it.
Rainbow Heal Beam
An alternate ability of Heal Beam, Rainbow Heal Beam does not do anything different from its normal ability; it is merely a cosmetic difference.
Solar Flare Beam
An alternate ability of Sunbeam, Solar Flare Beam is more powerful than Sunbeam and deals 10 impact damage and 12 critical damage. It has less ammo than Sunbeam and takes a bit longer to start shooting the beam.
Rainbow Heal Flower
Another alternate ability of Heal Flower, the Rainbow Heal Flower constantly gives out healing sun but gives out one at a time. Exclusive to Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare 2.
Play this Sunflower as you would play an Imp. Never stop moving, and be sure that you always have a target to fire at. Stay near your teammates so you can support each other - provide healing while they provide extra firepower. Vampire Flower is very fragile but with a 30 clip in stock, vanquishing foes should be easy as long as you're moving and dealing consistent damage. Heal Flower is not recommended to put on this variant, as you can heal yourself by attacking, so consider using the Dark Flower as a substitute. Be careful when rooting in place to use the Sunbeam. You do not absorb health while in this state, and your low health makes you a choice target for knowledgeable players. Vampire flower only has 85 health so she can easily get vanquished when fighting zombie players. This flower can also be, ironically, a good tank class, as long as you are constantly hitting a target, making the Vampire Flower an excellent choice for the Flag of Power.
It's best to use a Scientist to get the Vampire Flower as he can deal pretty big damage to her. Be careful if you are playing as an All-Star or a Super Brainz as your large size will make it easier for the Vampire Flower to hit you. The same applies to the Imp (when he's in his Mech). The Foot Soldier is great for taking on the Vampire Flower. If she's using her Sun Beam or Solar Flare Beam, then it takes only 1 ZPG to vanquish her. The All-Star can also instantly defeat a Vampire Flower with the Ultra Tackle. Try to attack her from a distance and keep firing your weapon as she only has 85 HP. It's also advised to bring a teammate with you as Sunflowers are easy to overwhelm.

- Her Stickerbook description is missing a full stop at the end of the last sentence.
- She uses two gestures in her trailer.
- The first is a celebratory motion, called "Jump & Thump," with her jumping up three times while seemingly saying "Hip hip, hooray!" However, the audio used is from the first game's gesture named "Perfect Zen."
- The second is "Root Spin", done in a manner that resembles ballet, which appeared in the first game.
- She is the second plant to steal health from zombies, the first being Count Chompula. Coincidentally, both are also vampire themed and have organ music playing.
- She has a fairly unique reload sound effect, with organ music playing and sometimes emitting an evil-sounding laugh. The organ music also plays when the Vampire Flower respawns.
- Vampire Flower and Fire Flower are the only sunflowers to not receive a damage buff in the Trouble in Zombopolis: Part One DLC even though it stated: "Increased all of Sunflower's damage by 10-20%."
