Pansy's are the most sold flower in the world.  There are two main types of pansy's, clear or pure & faced or blotch.  A pansy with a face/blotch, features a dark blotch in the center of the flower.  Pansy's are available in a amazing array of colors, can overwinter in many areas if they had time to develop a good footing and are easy to grow, rarely having any disease or insect problems.  Delta Fire features 2.5 to 3 inch blooms coming in Red, Scarlet & Yellow with Mahogany Red accents on compact 4 to 6 inch plants that keep the blooms from flopping over. 

The name pansy is derived from the French word pensee' meaning "thought", and was so named because the blotched 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 & turn a grey-green as a defense from the cold.
