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.

How is 250 sun cheap? - Haggisman

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! )

The most importnt plant in the game. - BlackAngel_ZombieBoy

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)

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

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

Peashooters are cute and strong and I olso like them because they are the line of defense. ☘️👍🏻😁💜

4 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.

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.

5 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

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

6 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!

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

7 Snow Pea

Snow pea looks very beautiful.

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

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

Its good if you have loads of dem - NoxicPlayz

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.

Shoots 2 peas

9 Hypno shroom

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

This is my most favorite plant.

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

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

Chopper shares characteristics with dogs. Put it in the first slot and if it didn’t eat anything it scratches it’s head with its leaves like a dog. It’s particularly useful against zombies because I won a Big Wave Beach Hard level with Chompers and Toadstools.

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

0_0 why is this here 0_0 - NoxicPlayz

V 4 Comments
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 - disturbedbomb

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

13 Gattling Pea

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

Best of all peashooters

?! this is lower then repeater and peashooter!?

Best peashooter ever

14 Pumpkin
15 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!

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!

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

16 Gloom-Shroom

Gloom-shroom is the upgrade of fumeshroom - bumy

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

17 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.

How is spikeweed higher then spikerock

18 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!

Squash is the best waifu

V 9 Comments
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

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

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 Toxic Pea

It should be number ten

Toxic peas rule

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.

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

25 Jalapeño

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

26 Blover
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 Puff-shroom
30 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

31 Potato Mine

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

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

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

32 Tangle Kelp

Its good very good

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 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


36 Bonk Choy

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

so cute

37 Sun Shroom
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 Magnifying Grass
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 Electric Blueberry

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.

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

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

It's pricy. Ingame and with the Inapp purchase price. Takes forever to recharge and when it attacks the next attack takes a while

42 Citron

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

It can kill a zombie in one hit!

So powerful


43 Lawn Mower

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

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!

This isn't a plant...

44 Twin Sunflower
45 Scaredy-shroom

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

46 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.

47 Strawburst

Epic when zombies eat it it explode

48 Flower Pot

Good on roof levels

Not to good but needed for roof levels

49 Cabbage-Pult
50 E.M. Peach
