Best Plants vs Zombies Plants


The Top Ten

1 Cattail

Cattail can attack zombies on any lane.
He can pop balloon zombie's balloon.
Cattail is best to plant on the 3rd, 4th and 5th lane

Good damage, fantastic range, good to use to pop balloon zombies and also at the start of a level. overall nice plant

I like cattail because he or she can get zombies in all lanes and pop balloons off balloon zombie

2 Sunflower

The most important plant in the game. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

In the night you need it so badley

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

3 Peashooter

I play as peashooter all the time! Best by far

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)

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

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

4 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.

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.

5 Cob Cannon


Why is the god of survival having such low ranking?

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

Recharges too slowly

6 Doom Shroom

It is the BEST on the final wave it killed the whole wave

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. - AnLSUQB

The most deadliest in the game of all times!

Doom Shroom has a big radius and does massive damage. I wish they brought this to PVZ 2.

7 Snow Pea

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

Snow pea looks very beautiful.

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

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

8 Repeater

Shoots 2 peas

Why is this lower than peashooter?

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

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

9 Hypno shroom

Zombies are our friends they are things lost wandering in darkness we should save them make them feel what we do and that's what hypno shroom does

This is my most favorite plant.

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.

Put em as close to the zombies as possible - garthgreen

10 Chomper


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 - garthgreen

The Contenders

11 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

Tall-nut is better.

12 Pumpkin

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

13 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 #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.

14 Gloom-Shroom

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

Why isn't this in the top three? Gloom-Shroom rocks, 4 damage per second in eight directions, need I say more? - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

Gloom-shroom is the upgrade of fumeshroom - bumy

15 Gattling Pea


Best peashooter ever

?! this is lower then repeater and peashooter!?

Shoots 4 peas!

16 Kernel-Pult

Kernel pelts butter came in very useful. One of them can kill a conehead

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!

I love kernel pult because it freezes zombies and gives time for other plants to attack vote for the flippin kernul pult

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

17 Squash

Squash is great for getting rid of pole vaulting zombies early on in online version, and it doesn't have to charge like the potato mine, so it is a good replacement for the online version

This is the best! It always saves the day for only 50 sun ☀️

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

I love squash its tasty and healthy

18 Spikeweed

How is spikeweed higher then spikerock

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.

19 Jalapeno

Set the hole entire row on fire


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.

20 Cherry Bomb

Cherry bomb is good but grapeshot is better.

Cherry bomb is da BOMB the damage he does is crazy

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


21 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

22 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.

23 Toxic Pea

It should be number ten

Toxic peas rule

24 Jalapeño

FIRE BABY! FIER! I love this plant sooo much.

25 Blover
26 Tall-nut

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

Tall nut makes the difference

How is this so low?

27 Magnet-Shroom

This should be higher

This is number niinnneee

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

28 Grave Buster
29 Tangle Kelp

Good for defeating strong zombies.

I love tangle kelp

Its good very good

30 Puff-shroom

Costs nothing and the recharge is decent

31 Garlic

Best plant in the game. You can funnel all the zombies into 2 lanes.

You can hit almost all zombies for less if you use garlic

Place 2 in front of an entire row of twin sunflowers.

You can save tons of money for plants
Was also my main plant for coin farming... Good memoried

32 Potato Mine

Very good for first zombies to buy time, thought this was too low

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

33 Ghost Pepper

This plant is like a mix of a cherry bomb and Jalapeno for 75 sun and a faster recharge time than both. It uses ghosts to haunt about 3 tiles in front of it and back and after a while it explodes and does a decent amount of damage to the zombies around it. It is really good. Just make sure to get a lot of gems because it is a limited gem plant. I have it and I use it often.

The ghost pepper is awesome! It can't be eaten, is able to be planted on water, explodes after already doing loads of damage, and is just 75 sun! (Unfortunately, it is limited edition, so when you have then chance, get it! (It costs gems, but not real money))

34 Cactus

If there is is a flying zombie the plant and shoot it down

The cactus is my 2nd favorite. So cool

I love cactus he can take 2 basic zombies down and his power up lasts forever and in 5 shoots a Gargantuar is down and I like cactus CU's if a zombie gets close cactus turns into a spike weed but stronger so this is my opinion on cactus bye.

35 Bonk Choy

so cute

It's a close ranged Peashooter that costs more sun. Yeah, like anybody enjoys that.

This little guy is my favorite plant he is epic with plant food put em behind wall nuts or tall nuts or infa nuts they will keep punching the zombie while it's eating it

These suck they have the range of choppers - garthgreen

36 Sun Shroom
37 Citron

Strong yeah but it take a long time to attack again

Does 16+ damage every time, should be in the top five. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

It can kill a zombie in one hit!

So powerful

38 Spore-shroom

You are so wrong. The spore shrooms is one of the best plants in the entire game, if you exclude the thyme warp.

The spore shroom is so bad! Why is it even in the game!

Wow you guys suck at rating

It's in PVZ 2
It grows another spore shroom where a Zombie killed by a Spore Shroom
Enough said

39 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


40 Spikerock

This is more expensive but better than the spike weed.


Dude, this plant is a beast. The only things that can kill it are the Gargantaur and the vehicle Zombies; but it will take them forever to kill! Serously, this keeps the Gargantaur busy while your plants wreck havoc. Really deadly plant imdead.

41 Lawn Mower

Not a plant, but they basically act like Jalapenos that can kill every zombie in one go, once activated. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

best plant

Uh, this is the best "plant" in the game. I use it all the time to get rid of hordes of zombies

That's not even a plant!

42 Magnifying Grass
43 Twin Sunflower

Good epic now

44 E.M. Peach

E.M. This dude great

They're only useful on certain occasions.

45 Electric Blueberry

This premium plant is one of the worst ever. This plant is the Lightning Reed version of Peanut like oh my god. - AnLSUQB

It has to charge up a little while to just kill ONE stupid zombie. I never use this plant and I think it is USELESS.

I found it very useless due to the fact that it rarely attacks. Waste of your moolah

Ok stop right now DOMINATE

46 Scaredy-shroom

If you plant it in the back it's a 25 sun peashooter

Can shoot farther range than puff-shroom,and very cheap

47 Rotobaga

Have you seen her? She is such a useful plant, especially when you've got a defensive plant about to be destroyed by the zombies.

48 Strawburst

Epic when zombies eat it it explode

49 Flower Pot

Good on roof levels

Not to good but needed for roof levels

50 Asparagus

This Is not even in the game.

They are the best they can push away very powerful zombies in one shot only they shoot slowly that's why I put them in down of snow pea
