Note: This Article is about Sunflower, for the Plant Hero counterpart, see Solar Flare.

Sunflower can't resist bouncing to the beat. Which beat is that? Why, the life-giving jazzy rhythm of the Earth itself, thumping at a frequency only Sunflower can hear.
~ Sundlower's description from the first game.
I'm just a sunflower but see me power an entire infantry
You like the taste of brains, we don't like zombies

When attack, she spits a small sun that can deal with damages dependent on the amount of strength.

Sunflower returned in this game to help the players plant their plant defenses with the sun. Unlike other versions, she cannot be planted. Rather, she appears on the sun meter as an idle determinant of the situation.

Sunflower, alongside Peashooter, Wall-nut, Bonk Choy, The Player, Crazy Dave, and Penny ventured through Neighborville to obtain the Solar Sunglasses. To do this, she had to find the magic beans and use their magic words to open the Vault. The heroes also encountered the Brainiacs on the way.
