Strategies

Windbreak Dendrobium is a must-use plant in Heian Age, since it can prevent any wind attacks from blowing away different plants. Plant more Windbreak Dendrobiums on adjacent lanes can stack up more numbers of leaves along with more health, since Windbreak Dendrobium starts off with two leaves and much lower health, and if it instantly lose two leaves at once, it'll be blown away by the wind.

You must be careful with Gargantuars since they able to smash Windbreak Dendrobium with no problem whatsoever. Try to plant a low-sun cost plants like Puff-shroom to distract them.
