Also known as Winter Pansies, these are hardier than regular bedding pansies, tolerating more winter cold and summer heat. Plants form a low, bushy mound of bright green leaves, with loads of fragrant miniature pansy flowers from early spring to late fall, all winter in milder regions. Trim back in early summer to promote fresh growth. Excellent for massing, edging, rock gardens and in mixed containers. This mixture features flowers in a range of shades, including blue, purple, red, apricot, white and yellow. All pansies are short-lived perennials, usually lasting a couple of seasons.
