Pansy's are the most sold flower in the world.  There are two main types of pansy's, clear or pure & face or blotch.  A pansy with a face/blotch, features a dark blotch in the center of the flower.  Pansy's are available in an amazing arracy of colors, can overwinter in many areas if they had time to develop a good footing and are easy to grow, rarely having any diseases or insect problems.  Matrix Scarlet is a clear scarlet red. The Matrix Series features superior branching to go along with uniform flowering & habit among all Matrix varieties.  The large 3 to 3.5 inch matrix flowers are held on short, strong peduncles that help keep them from flopping over.

The word pansy is derived from the French word pensee' meaning "thought", and was so named because the botched flower resembles a human face.  Because of this the pansy has long been a symbol of freethought.  Pansy flowers are edible and when temps drop below 25 degrees their foliage will wilt and turn a grey - green as a defense from the cold.
