SKU Name

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 Premium Beaconsfield features a 2.5 - 3 inch purple with light blue to white upper petals on compact 4 to 6 inch plants that keep the blooms from flopping over. 

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