    Blights, Corpse Flowers, Shambling Mounds; these are all good plant monsters.

    Honestly, most aberrations are easily reflavorable to plants as well, like gibberish mouthers and Ropers.

    Twig Blights are in the Monster Manual.

    Tomb of Annihilation has the tri-frond flower, the yellow musk creeper, assassin vines, and vegepygmies, off the top of my head.

    I can recommend using the Tome of Beasts and Creature Codex from Kobold Press, as they have a heap of plant beings.

    So for generations did the sainted skull of Caius Anicius Magnus Furius Camillus Æmilianus Cornelius Valerius Pompeius Julius Ibidus, consul of Rome, favourite of emperors, and saint of the Romish church, lie hidden beneath the soil of a growing town. At first worshipped with dark rites by the prairie-dogs, who saw in it a deity sent from the upper world..
    - H.P. Lovecraft, "Ibid".

    “Plot” is what the DM does to amuse himself when the players aren’t talking.

    The easiest thing I've done for "weird" plant monsters is choose an aberration of the appropriate CR, give it plant traits on top of what already there. Describe it differently.

    Don't know if it has 5e stat block made but look into the monster "Wolf-in-sheep's-clothing" that old monster may feel just right, depending on how you modify its lure.
