Just discovered you regarding my new love for dahlias and read this on your pansies. I had no idea you could get long stems in them. I know how to spread their seeds around my garden and grow them in winter here in Lake Stevens and keep them deadheaded. I dont call them annuals because of this. I prefer the purples and blues and the frilly edged ones, this will be fun to explore more
where to buy pansies
Pansies are my favorite flower. They always put a smile on face. Your flowers are beautiful. I have never grown pansies by seed. Are they easy to grow from seed? I live in Southern California. Also, wanted to tell you that I love your blog. I would love to visit your nursery one day.
I hve picked outdoor-grown pansies, short stemmed and buffeted by winds, rain and cold. To elongate the stems as much as possible, I have picked well below the bottom of the flower stem, almost including roots. Did you do any testing and have insights on this method? Thank you.
Lovely. 20 plus years ago, when I was using my garden flowers to do weddings, I would tuck in pansies as they symbolize remembrance. For different couples that meant different things, but it was always appreciated.Beverly
Great article, thanks for sharing this delightful pictures and useful information on pansies with us. Pansies are the cutest, we have a lot of them in our store. Pansies always make a great addition to your garden and give out positive vibes!
Dear Erin, thank you so much for this Information and the masses of work it made bringing it to us! I am totally addicted to pansies, even more after a flowerclass with Fleuropean. I am in the second year of my cutflower Garden and sowed some pansies in different spots last autumn. Do you think, if I cover them, they can also make longer stems planted in a big pot, or do they need the conditions of a larger bed? Thank you and sunny wishes from Germany, Anne

Who can resist the charming faces of pansy? These happy-go-lucky annual flowers almost seem to smile as you walk by. Pansies comes in a myriad of colors and patterns that look their best in the spring or fall when the weather is cool. In fact, in milder climates, pansies will bloom all winter long. 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 of until hot summer weather brings the flower show to a close. Colors include yellow, red, mahogany, blue, purple, mauve, pink, orange, white, and even black. Pansies also bear either clear or blotched flowers.Pansy Questions?Email us and one of our flower gardening experts will get back to you.
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. Fall-planted pansies have a tendency to be a bit larger and stronger than those planted in the spring because they have more time to develop a deeper root system while temperatures remain cool.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. Pansies are not recommended for human or animal consumption.
With the classic striations of the viola, penny violas are a compact grower with beautiful patterns and color variety. A smaller flower than pansies, these annual violas are the perfect dainty accent with long-lasting color.

Cool Wave Pansies are your spreading garden color in cooler weather. These friendly-faced flowers outperform other pansies, and fill in your garden fast. They survive reliably through the frost and provide early-season color alongside your bulbs in the spring. They make excellent hanging baskets or spill over balconies and patio containers, too.
Pansies are considered invasive in Alaska, where they may crop up along roadways or in disturbed areas, potentially taking moisture and nutrients from native species. The upshot is that pansies struggle to compete with the state's established species.
Unfortunately, no. Deer love to munch on these cool-season flowers and can severely damage them. Try not to plant other deer favorites around your pansies to reduce the odds of attracting the animals.
Both pansies and violas can be planted in the ground, accentuating the edge of borders or growing up together with your spring bulbs. They are marvelous in containers too. An early season container combination could include a closely planted base of violas with pussy willow branches stuck into the soil between them for height. In the autumn, look for the orange and black varieties for a Halloween theme.
After planting, water well. Add a bit of diluted liquid fertilizer to give your plants a head start. Continue to water on any sunny, dry and/or windy day. It will take a couple of weeks for the pansies to settle into their new environment. A regimen of liquid feed every other week through the end of May will keep Cool Wave Pansies healthier and producing more flowers.
When considering which pansies to buy, take into consideration the amount of planting space and how many pansies you will need. As a general rule, for flower beds, you want to space pansies 7-12 inches apart. In containers, space them 4 inches apart.
Plant your pansies in moist, rich, well-drained soil. Amend your soil ahead of time or during planting with compost, manure, or other soil amendments. Pansies should be planted where they can get at least 6 hours or more of direct sunlight.
If your pansies are not producing as many blooms as you might expect, they may need to be pruned. Areas that are thick with stems should be pruned. Also, make sure that you are removing dropped leaves, blossoms and stems. Debris around the base of the plant can lock in unwanted moisture. If you are seeing yellow leaves, make sure to prune those back right away.
Obviously, your pansies will be used to add color to your gardens and containers. But did you know that pansies can also be used as a garnish for food dishes? Pansies are edible (they have a mild mint flavor), and can add beautiful color to salads, desserts, side dishes or even your main course!
After all, if there are pansies available, I must have them. But never before have I looked for them before March. In March, I used to cruise by garden centers looking for signs of life, for a few pansies out front. I wanted to always be the first gardener to have a container or two of them planted up in the spring. I still do.
You read my mind! I have had the bug too to get some pansies but the local garden center where I usually get them isn't even open yet. Just yesterday, I thought of taking a ride to see if I could find some elsewhere. This winter just feels so long and I cannot wait to get my hands in the soil again! Enjoy your blooms!
You need those cupcakes so you can reward yourself for getting your pansies planted. This is a strange February. Lucky you to find pansies. I was just thinking about them today too. I haven't found any here.
Picking up some pansies sounds like an excellent idea! I will have to add that to my to do list. They are perennials where I live in the Pacific Northwest and I haven't planted them at my current house yet. Have you ever tried using them in meals? I know they are edible, but I haven't tried them.
But it was a clump of pansies she spotted on a walk through her neighborhood that most recently captured her imagination. There was nothing special about the flowers growing near a street corner in northwest Loveland, except they were in flower from November through February.
Because these pansies have small faces, they are most likely Viola hiemalis (winter flowering or ice pansies). This low-growing species probably originated in the mountains of Eurasia to be so adapted to the cold. Plants are able to bloom in chilly soil and temperatures to 6 degrees.
Pansies are a cool-hardy plant for colorful patio pots to get a jump on the season, says Tanner Wheat, garden center manager at Lafayette Florist, Gift Shop and Garden Center. A container of pansies adds color that will last until the temperatures heat up and other flowers take their place.
Fertilizing is important, too, she adds. Use a water-soluble fertilizer every two weeks so pansies continue to flower. As temperatures warm up, move planters into shade for a longer display of flowers.
