Who can resist the charming faces of a pansy? These happy-go-lucky flowers almost seem to smile as you walk by. Pansies come in a myriad of colours and patterns that look their best in the Spring or Fall when the weather is cool. Pansies excel in beds and borders or packed into window boxes, hanging baskets, and containers. This foolproof, little sun-lover grows 6 to 9 inches tall and will bloom its head off until warmer weather brings the flower show to a close. Colours include yellow, red, mahogany, blue, purple, mauve, pink, orange, white, and even black. Pansies also bear either clear or blotched flowers.
Plant pansies in a sunny spot in rich, well-drained soil. The plants can tolerate some dryness, but prefer to be just slightly moist at all times. Remove the faded flowers as they appear to encourage the production of additional blooms.
Pansies are sometimes called heavy feeders, meaning they bloom best when fertilized regularly. Use a slow-release fertilizer at planting time or use a product you dilute in water each time you irrigate your pansies to keep them blooming profusely.
