PANSIES & VIOLAS
Want beautiful color that will survive the cool temperatures of early-spring or late-fall? Look no further than the tough, cold-tolerant, and colorful pansy. Available in many shades of blue, yellow and purple, pansies are the perfect introduction to spring gardening and can also be planted late in the fall. Our pansies are all fresh and especially healthy as they are grown locally at our own growing division in Woburn, MA.
Pansies are very easy to grow, both in the ground and in containers. They can be planted by themselves but also look great when combined with other cool-season annuals or spring bulbs. Pansies bloom best in sun to partial shade. Ideally, 4 hours of sunlight is best. They also prefer cool growing temperatures 40-65 degrees F. Morning sun with some afternoon shade is an excellent growing site. Pansies don’t do well in heat and humidity, however they can tolerate slightly warmer exposures and will bloom longer if planted in evenly moist, well-drained, nutrient rich soil. They make excellent container garden or bedding plants, and attract butterflies with their light fragrance.
