Pansies & Violas

  • Now is the time to plant pansies & violas so they can establish and provide garden and container garden color throughout fall, winter and even early spring

    • Pansies: Usually refer to plants with large, showy blooms.
    • Violas: Blooms are smaller in size but the plants tend to bloom more profusely

    • Standard pansies & violas grow 4-6 inches tall & 5-8 inches wide

Cool Wave Pansies

  • There's a new type of pansy called the "Cool Wave Pansy"
  • Cool Wave pansies grow faster so you'll have larger plants with more blooms faster
