Best Plants vs Zombies Plants

The Top Ten

1 Cattail

It can target anything on the board and shoot down those horrid balloon zombies!

Amazing in the first game, useful in the second (as Homing Thistle, of course)

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.

Yep, best plant ever. This is a huge advantage in last stand endless. You NEVER have to worry about balloon zombies. I wish it was is pvz 2.

2 Sunflower

I do a weird thing were one line sunflower and marigold also this is the best singer in PVZ

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.

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 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.

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.

4 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)

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

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

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

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!

Why is the god of survival having such low ranking?

6 Doom Shroom

The doomshroom is the most powerful god plant like superman

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

7 Snow Pea

Very useful in adventure mode, especially when combined with kernel pults!

Snow pea looks very beautiful.

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 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.

How is repeater below peashooter

9 Hypno shroom

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

Use it on a disco zombie so you get 4 extra ones and they respawn

I think it’s amazing. It makes zombies fights zombies. I love it!

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.

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

It has its problems, and it's definitely one I don't use, but don't you think the plants which literally do nothing whatsoever like the Marigold are worse?

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

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.

They take forever to be ready to eat the next zombie

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

Wall-nut. Tall-nut. I like nuts.

12 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

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.

13 Pumpkin

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

Incredibly useful plant that takes up NO SPACE!

This with tall-nut is amazing

14 Gattling Pea

Gatling pea plus Torchwood = beaten level

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?

15 Gloom-Shroom

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

Gloom-shroom is the upgrade of fumeshroom

16 Kernel-Pult

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

Why is it so underrated?

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!

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!

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

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!

18 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.

My favorite plant

How is spikeweed higher then spikerock

19 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

Cherry bomb is da BOMB the damage he does is crazy


20 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.

21 Fume-Shroom

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

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

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 Tall-nut

Tall nut makes the difference

How is this so low?

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

yaaa boi

25 Jalapeño

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