(='SMEV1') 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 pansy flowers from early spring to late fall. This selection is part of the Celestial Series introduced for their winter hardiness, early flowering, compact habit and heat tolerance. It produces white flowers that are edged in lavender-blue with a deep yellow eye. Trim back in early summer to promote fresh growth. Excellent for massing, edging, rock gardens and in mixed containers. All pansies are short-lived perennials, usually lasting a couple of seasons. Sometimes these will flower all winter in climates with mild weather. USPP#19882: unlicensed propagation prohibited. Registered with COPF.
