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 disease or insect problems. Panola Halloween Mix is festive mix of Black & Orange flowers. The Panola’s are a cross between a Pansy & Viola which results in medium sized flowers that hold up better in rain and snow. The blooms may be smaller but don’t let that make you think you will get less color. Panola’s are a prolific bloomer that has been known to have to a 12, quarter-sized flowers, at once on a plant. They are a very nice landscape pansy that is uniform in habit, overwinters well and has good heat tolerance. .
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.
