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 an 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 diseases or insect problems. Delta Pure Violet features 2.5 to 3 inch Clear Deep Violet flowers that sit on top 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.
