HOW TO GROW

Sowing: Direct sow in late fall, planting the seed just below the surface of the soil. For spring planting, mix the seeds with moist sand and store in the refrigerator for 60-90 days before planting. Keep the soil lightly moist until germination.

Growing: Water seedlings regularly until they become established. Though they flourish with occasional watering in especially dry weather, mature plants can tolerate short periods of drought in addition to adapting to many soil types. Deadhead to prolong blooming. This plant may self-seed. It makes an excellent choice as a ground cover or border plant, as well as performing well as a container plant.

Harvesting: For cut flowers, choose stems with flowers that have just opened. Strip the foliage that will fall below the water level, and place in water immediately.

Seed Saving: After the flowers fade, oval pods will begin to develop. When ripe, each pod will split open into three sections that hold the ripe seeds. Remove the seeds. Since they lose their viability quickly, planting immediately will result in the best germination. If storing is necessary, keep the seed in the refrigerator until planting.

DESCRIPTION

IN-STOCK ORDERS SHIP THE NEXT BUSINESS DAY VIA THE US POST OFFICE.

Worthy of a Swiss window box, these impressive blooms come in a brilliant array of color. This compact plant is technically a perennial but is often grown as an annual. The flowers are edible and can be used as garnishes, or in salads.
The name "pansy" comes from the French word "pensee," meaning "thought." In the language of flowers, pansies signify remembrance. In the early 19th century, Lord Gambier and his gardener William Thompson produced the original pansy hybrid, a cross between various species of native violets. The new species received the name "wittrockiana" in honor of noted Swedish botanist Viet Brecher Wittrock.
