Best Plants vs Zombies Plants


The Top Ten

1 Cattail

Pops balloons, shoots anywhere, two at a time, cheap (250 sun) and is just the best. - Thepenguinking2

This is one of my favorites the cattails are very good unfortunately they can only be planted in fog or pool and can only plants so many of them

It really good for the fog levels because if you don't know where the zombies are the cattail will kill it.

This plant is awesome! It can shoot zombies in all lanes,and it's only 250 sun (can be more). Only problems are that it's an upgrade plant,and that spikes don't go after another zombie after target dies.

2 Sunflower

This plant is VERY important. if you no plant this, then where the sun points coming from?

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! )

3 Peashooter

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)

Peashooter is the best plant for the first wave, it's cheap and useful.

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

But it can't shoot zombies on the roof...

4 Doom Shroom

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

The best once killed a hole huge wave of zombies

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

Amazing Blows up almost the whole lawn of zombies

5 Snow Pea

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

Snow pea looks very beautiful.

How is the peashooter above Snowpea? The snow pea is way better. It can freeze zombies it looks cool. - nintendofan126

Its good if you have loads of dem - NoxicPlayz

6 Winter Melon

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!

This plant is the best by far. In all top ten Plants vs Zombies plants I've seen, It's always the highest plant in the list, and for a good reason. It slows zombies, deals damage to them and does splash damage/freeze.

Destroys all zombies weaker than gargantuars.

7 Repeater

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

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

Because the peashooter is cheaper.

In many games I don't even use peashooters, just reapeaters. - RecklessGreed

8 Wall-nut

How just how does this top tall-nut

The tall nut and primal walnut are way better

Who ever made this list must crazier then crazy dave

0_0 why is this here 0_0 - NoxicPlayz

9 Gattling Pea

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

Best of all peashooters

Such power very wow

Gatling Pea + Toarchwood = No more Garagantuars

10 Melon-pult

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.

Should be 1 and Winter Melon 2

This is one of the strongest pults in the game - disturbedbomb

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

The Contenders

11 Kernel-Pult

Kernel pult is useful, and when I see zombies with butter in their faces I just laugh all the time I see that

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.

Kernel-Pult is amazing

12 Chomper

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 - garthgreen

Zombies are best served with salt

So godly. Number 3 now.

13 Spikeweed

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

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! - BlastZER0

14 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

Hot? I REALLY hope you mean by warm...

15 Cob Cannon

This plant should be WAY MORE HIGHER THAN THIS! I use it in survival endless and it is quite good!

This is the best one in the whole game!

Kernel pull should be way higher than this garbage.

THIS SHOULD BE number 1!

16 Squash

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!

It's lit

17 Potato Mine

Potato mines are pretty good but I think primal potato mines are better.

Who said nobody likes this? This is an amazing plant to the top!

Nobody likes u

18 Cherry Bomb

Cherry bomb is good but grapeshot is better.

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


19 Torchwood

Touchwood makes a peashooter like a fire peashooter

I hate her wait is it a boy or a girl even though why is it even in the game

If torchwood would not be in the game the peashooter would not be able to kill a wave of zombies. so the torchwood is pretty good! it should be place 3,4, or 5


20 Fume-Shroom

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

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

The esconde best shroom

I love it in both first and second games,because its an inexpensive area of effect,great for taking out groups
