Winter-mint is a Power Mint plant in Plants vs. Zombies 2. When planted, he chills all zombies on the board. He can also boost any Winter-mint Family plants on the lawn by increasing the effectiveness of their properties, such as damage and chill duration. 

Winter-mint Family plants include: 

Like other Power Mints, Winter-mint cannot be imitated or affected by other mints. He remains on the lawn for 10 seconds at level 1.

Winter-mint can be purchased from the store with 100 mints while he is available.

Origins

He is based on the Lamiaceae, also known as mint.

His name is a portmanteau of "winter," referring to his abilities and appearance, and "mint."

Strategies

Winter-mint's ability to chill all enemies on the field is redundant since the zombies will generally already be chilled by the plants in Winter-mint's family, and Contain-mint generally does a better job at stalling zombies. Winter-mint also does not have the most potent offensive plants, as none of them have long-range splash damage at a reasonable price. Winter Melon costs too much sun to be viable and Cold Snapdragon has too little of a range to be viable, leading other mints to be a better option in most cases.

It is not recommended to bring Winter-mint into levels where you can't lose plants, as, like the other Power Mints, he will disappear after a while.

Trivia

  • His family is the smallest, consisting of only five plants.
