Good question. Zyra's plants will not automatically prioritize enemy champions over minions. They will, however, target enemy champions she has launched a basic attack against.
Next patch (a couple weeks), I will be adding a self-only particle for Zyra so that she can see the unit her plants are targeting, which will hopefully make learning this gameplay easier, since the re-target in response to a basic attack will be clearer.

As to Zyra being played as a support:
Morello, Coronach and I always envisioned her as a champion capable of excelling in either role. We have consistently used her as a support in our internal playtests since she was released. We have similarly seen teams running Lux and Morgana bottom lane in recent competitive events, which I think actually spices up the scene. In the end, however, Zyra's strength bottom lane is best judged by our Live Design team in light of season 3's
changes to Summoner's Rift's itemization and passive income stream.
Quote:So why do you have so much beef when it comes to a support who gets played AP mid?
However, I will say that you are greatly exaggerating the weakness of champions like Janna, Soraka, and Lulu in solo lanes. Each offers substantial utility to their team when itemized with greater gold access. To the extent these champion's have seen their solo laning power diminished, it was not to drive them out of those lanes, but rather to bring them in line with our other mages. Taking Janna as an example, her kit's total AP ratio is actually very high, especially when considering that shields are enhanced by mitigation.
