Water Gun Grass (水枪草; pinyin: shuǐqiāng cǎo) was a plant in Plants vs. Zombies: Journey to the West and later Plants vs. Zombies: Great Wall Edition. It was the first and only plant to be unlocked in The Dragon's Palace. It fired projectiles at close range zombies similarly to Puff-shroom. Unlike Puff-shroom however, its range was one tile further and it could only be placed underwater. It's main purpose in the game is to attract the fish thrown by the Fish Thrower Imp, thus make other plants safe. The fish thrown by the Fish Thrower Imp could immobilized a plant on the same lane for more than 10 seconds, so use it as a counter to the fish.
It is based on the bubble-tip anemone (Entacmaea quadricolor), a species of anemone that is typically found in the Indo-Pacific area which typically house several types of anemonefish. Like all anemone, the bubble-tip anemone is actually an animal and not a plant.
