Zorrose (玫瑰剑客; pinyin: méiguī jiànkè) is a monthly special plant in the Chinese version of Plants vs. Zombies 2. He rapidly attacks zombies with his thorn sword at a close range of 1.5 tiles. When the target's HP is higher than 30%, his stabs the target every 0.7 seconds on average (slower than Bonk Choy). When the target's HP is lower than 30%, his charges before attacking, which makes his attack every 1.4 seconds. However, the damage he deals will be three times as high as before.
Puzzle Pieces for this plant can be collected through daily sign-in reward for Android users in July. He was released in the Sky City update for iOS, along with Magic-shroom and Bambrook. However, recently he is available for the second daily sign in gift.
Zorrose in Plants vs. Zombies Online is only used in Adventure Mode. The only way to obtain it is by collecting 240 puzzle pieces.
Zorrose is based on Rosa chinensis found in Southwest China. However, its attack pattern, costumed Plant Food effect, name, and costume are references to Zorro, a Mexican legend.
Zorrose attacks approaching zombies and launches a strong attack when they are at low health.

This mysterious swordsman from the far east said that it was Versailles Gogh. When he drinks in the bar, he always boasts that he is an artist beyond the era. "These rude guys can never understand what I wanted to express!" He always says that angrily. "You know that Sunflower, the famous singer. I once drew a picture beyond the era for her, but she unexpectedly declared that what I had drawn was junk! That was my only picture which was not about roses! I also signed the initial of my name specially. I bet that just my signature is enough to make the picture a priceless one......Burrrrrp!"

The Almanac hints that Zorrose's name is Van Gogh, which is a reference to the famous artist. He said "Versailles" is his first name and "Gogh" is his last name. When the first and the last words of this name in Chinese are put together, a name pronounced the same as Van Gogh in Chinese (凡高 to 梵高) can be produced.
In the 1.6.0 update, he, along with Magic-shroom, gained their own unique sounds.
