Best Plants vs Zombies Plants

The Top Ten
1 Cattail

I think these plants would crush giga and regular gargantuars and it is just so powerful! anyone who regects this is gonna get demolished. vote for these plants!

Cattail is OP it follows the zombies! But the bad thing is that you can only place it in water.:( But on the bright side it does so much damage and it is pretty cheap if you have a lot of sunflowers.

The pool easier to defend than the surrounding lanes, so what if there was a plant that would be able to shoot projectiles that could damage zombies on all six lanes and pop balloons.

Cattail rocks! She can pop balloons, which is really useful; she can attack zombies hiding in fog, which is useful if you don't have plants like Blover and Plantern, she can attack anywhere; she is cheap (250 sun), and is just cute. Overall Cattail is just the very best. It stinks that it's not in PVZ 2.

2 Sunflower

One of the few day plants (in the original game) to still be useful after beating adventure mode. Chomper and Potato Mine aren't too overpowered. Peashooter, Snow Pea and most of the other day plants get replaced with stronger ones later on. However, Sunflower remains useful in day, pool and roof levels.

I think this should share a spot with Sun-shroom. They seem the same, and the Sun-shroom is better if you wait a minute or two. Sun-shroom price: 25 sunflower price: 50 and eventually the sun-shroom goes to 25 suns

This is what you need to plant any plants! (But sadly, sun buff (25 to 50) per sun is bad. The purpose is ruined, though you're never getting ever even a repeater with sun falling! )

I agree that sunflower is the most important plant in the game. I take extra good care of my sunflowers but putting wal nuts right ahead of them

3 Winter Melon

I really like winter melon because he does so much damage to a group of zombies. Plus it slows them down to. It is my personal favorite plant in the entire game. Also I love watermelon in real life so it is awesome in both ways. Some people say it is to expensive but I dissagree. As long as you plant 2 rows of sunflowers, you will find this plant fairly easy to purchase with sun. Anyway, winter melon is definitely my favorite plant in all of plants v.s. zombies.

Can kill zombie in 2 shots, is like a Snow Pea but in Watermelon form (watermelon is already great), and it also is way cheaper than plants like cob cannon which takes a while to reload even if it can kill a zombie in 1 hit + it is also cheaper than a cattail which is worse because it does so much less damage, it is also less expensive and better than the 3-headed peashooter, and gatling pea.

Meet Winter Melon. He can kill normal zombies in 2 shots (with splash damage), so around 3 shots alone. He also slows zombies which is always great. The only zombies I think it is bad at is the Gargantuar and the Gigas, but the Gigas are pretty much a given. Again, I just noticed, why are the characters I like the most (ala Winter Melon) the underrated ones? At least beat Winter Melon!

Winter melon: more damage than the melon pult AND can freeze things. Seriously overpowered in Last stand: Endless. Why is this 6? It should probably be higher, at least 3. This can also destroy groups at a time unlike a forward shooting projectile plant who only gets the first zombie. Two of these alone can take out a pack of giga gargantuars.

4 Peashooter

Used for start in the game. In PvZ 2 the most cases where Peashooter is desired, Electric Peashooter or Shadow Peashooter is functionally superior.

It is way better than cattail! It's the most common and the best! How could some wannabe plant defeat Peashooter! Peashooter is the main plant along with Sunflower. Cattail, what are we zombies with no brains! (Get it)

It is my favorite because its cheap and fast, and in level 20 it is a lot better than the repeater

Main plant in the game good cool looking and overall the main line of defense

5 Cob Cannon

It was once said that the might of a titan always paled in comparison to that of a god.
Cob Cannon's immense power reigns supreme, and even the greatest warriors tremble under his might

These sites are broken and have too many little kids that think this is pvz 2... What a great site! I can see how this got here from having no email to vote

Kernel pull should be way higher than this garbage.

Why is the god of survival having such low ranking?

6 Doom Shroom

The most powerful plant in the game. Leaves a crater and has long range unlike other explosive plants. The best of all!

I save up sun for the doom shroom to activate for the final wave
A huge wave of zombies are approaching

This plant is just awesome. PVZ 2 should add him as a premium. Of course because of his radius and the fact he leaves a crater.

Doom shroom is cheap and useful on the final wave the only bad thing is it's a night time plant

7 Snow Pea

Okay when you on have the peashooter. Becomes almost overshadowed when you get the Repeater.

Badass, Powerful, and really good at taking out those pole vault zombies, the snow pea!

How is the peashooter above Snowpea? The snow pea is way better. It can freeze zombies it looks cool.

You need 3 of them in each row but you need a column of sunflowers to do that

8 Hypno shroom

This should be at the BOTTOM of the list because they spend almost all battle sleeping plus all they do is put zombies on you're side, so it's OBVIOUSLY the worst.

Need to get rid of a pesky zombie that is too hard to take down? No problem, use a Hypno Shroom! The hypnotized zombie can even attack other zombies! This is a really cool plant.

The hypno shroom is beast it can hypnotise anything that stands in its way should be number 2

You can literally have a football zombie take out a lane for you

9 Repeater

Repeaters are just a good amount of sun to wreck and be kind of cheap

Very useful against zombies in earlier stages. But it cost 200 sun.

With repeaters, you don't need any peashooters. Really good

Because the peashooter is cheaper.

10 Chomper

Easily the worst plant in the game.

- Short Range, gets completely outclassed by other 1-shot plants
- Takes way too long to eat, literally if two zombies are next to each other this plant will die, spends more time chewing zombies than actually killing them. normally better to just let it eat a zombie and then get rid of it immediately
- 150 suns, way to high for 1-shot plant of its speed. rendered useless by squash for its cost, cherry bomb for its range. LITERALLY MORE EXPENSIVE THAN DOOM SHROOM, THE PLANT THAT IF PLACED WELL, CAN KILL EVERY SINGLE ZOMBIE ON THE SCREEN.
- Can only hit one zombie at a time - gets completely destroyed if there's more than one zombie coming at it.
- Way to long to recharge - BAD
- Can't eat gargantuan zombies in one go - gee if it could do this is would still be horrible.

Geez, this is the worst plant in the game. all these kids who think it's cool. absolutely horrible plant that has way to many flaws for its zero ...more

I love it! It eats every zombie. Just put another Chomper in front of each chewing one and it would be endless. Watch out for the huge zombies, though.

Wait I'm confused don't the zombies eat plants why are plants eating zombies

They take forever to be ready to eat the next zombie

The Contenders
11 Wall-nut

I think this plant is good enough, but when you get to the new premium plant explode-o-nut the regular wall nut is... well just put it this way, you will NEVER want to use the regular wall nut again. I survived several levels using the explode-o-nut. But I still like the wall nut

Wall nuts are really cool I think. I use them ALL the time. Every level I use them.
They block zombies and there useful.

Who ever made this list must crazier then crazy dave

The tall nut and primal walnut are way better

12 Pumpkin

They don't cost to much and they protect your most valuable plants. Not essential but usful.

A go to on every loadout. Use on Sun Producing plants and anywhere you need shoring up.

This with tall-nut is amazing

Incredibly useful plant that takes up NO SPACE!

13 Jalapeno

Jalapeno usually isn't good for the first wave but in the last wave it is super useful. It can burn a whole lane of zombies!

Jalapeno does take a little while to refresh, but it is really cheap for the massive damage it does.

Jalapeno is so good. It can destroy a LOT of zombies if you use it correctly

Jalapeno is very good and useful. Plus I think his face is funny.

14 Melon-pult

This should be #1. Not only is it essential to the game in multiple scenarios, but you can plant it ANYWHERE. It is the toughest plant in the game other than the insta kill plants, and you can use it in every level, unlike my second favorite, Cat tail.

Most of the player use this for a huge wave of zombies it can kill door zombies and an original zombies in just 3-4 shots.

How is Melon Pult above Winter Melon? Ah well, it's still a good plant to take out tough zombies.

This should be higher. its one of the most powerful catapult plants in the game

15 Gatling Pea

Gattling pea is the best of all! However, it needs repeater.

Gattling with torch wood is the most overpowered thing

The best by far. Have you tried plant food on this thing?

Gatling pea plus Torchwood = beaten level

16 Gloom-Shroom

Gloom-shroom is the upgrade of fumeshroom

This plant is INFINITE pierce. All I need to say.

17 Spikeweed

Put these in front of a wall nut or tall nut and the zombies get damaged wall there eating it

Spike weed is AMAZING. Anyone who disagrees has only used them to pop tires of vehicles.

Dude, just make it a Spike Rock and BOOM!
You got yourself a deadly ground trap!

How is spikeweed higher then spikerock

18 Squash

Really, REALLY useful in many situations. in the first game it is good, in number 2, if you level it up, it does 3 SQUASHES (level 3) (one smash, jumps back, squashes again) and so on. You can kill a new garg with ONE of these

If you have a pesky zombie that you have a hard time trying to get rid of by the house, then use a squash! SQUASH SQUASH SQUASH!

Squash is super underrated here. Great to have to save yourself if you have a weaker lane

It can squash two or more zombies at once... this is MUCH better than a 26 ranking!

19 Kernel-Pult

Also I found this, Kernel-Pult can attack Snorkel Zombies, what I meant is that Kernel-Pult can detect and attack Snorkel Zombies even when they're diving, the butter also hits too!

An awesome plant that has an awesome stunning effect. Kernel-pult combined with snow pea = WIN!

Why is it so underrated?

Kernel punt is great, probably should be #7 on this list. People, vote for KERNEL!

It's very useful and very hilarious when a zombie gets smacked with butter.

20 Cherry Bomb

This should be in the top 10. Always helps to use this to clear out a large section of zombies

Cherry bomb is da BOMB the damage he does is crazy

Cherry bomb is good but grapeshot is better.

Haha cherry go brrr

21 Fume-Shroom

I like the attack when given plant food. It can push back and destroy zombies.

The esconde best shroom

The piercing effect is great for killing HUGE HOARDS OF ZOMBIES!

Fume shrooms are just so awesome beucause they are bugs me the go through the screens of the screen zombies

22 Tall-nut

So good beats pogos, dolphins and pole vaulters and is the most durable, should be at number 1

Keeps pole jumpers out and almost everything else.

Tall nut makes the difference

How is this so low?

23 Umbrella Leaf

It is very important in survival mode, and in addition, if it was in the second game, it would be even more useful. Like pumpkin, this is an under-rated plant that is cheap, yet useful. Just think, it could block thrown-imps, it could stop seagulls, stop Zomboss missiles, stop Zombotany cabbagepult zombies, and protect surrounding plants, something it is good at, etc. This plant has a fast recharge and a low cost, too.

Gets rid of bungees

24 Blover

This plant is more useful in PvZ 2, since there is a lot more Flying Zombies! It's even cheaper! (50 Sun.) Which makes it VERY good when you consider the fact Sunflowers now make 50 sun.

25 Magnet-Shroom

One of two mushrooms worth using in day levels with Coffee Bean.

This should be higher

This plant is so amazing that you need just to put them in the slightly high and bottom rows! Helpful in all stages :D

This is number niinnneee
