Now you have a choice! Joining the yellow and orange colors of mums is a new breed of pansies for two different climates.
First, there are Icicle Pansies, the #1 Winter Pansy for Canada and the northern U.S., providing a broad spectrum of color from September until the snow flies. They hibernate under the snow and pop up in spring -- guaranteed! Offered in 16 different colors and seven unique mixes, there s a color for everyone s liking.
Second, there is the Pansymonium collection of pansies -- Hot Chilly Pansies, offering staying power for hot temperatures and boasting more blooms longer; Flamenco Pansies, featuring flowers that dance in your garden with ruffled edges like a Flamencos dancer s skirt; and Big Shot Pansies, touted as the World s Biggest Pansy. They are geared for more gentle winter climates in parts of Canada and southern U.S.
Both are planted in the fall and can create a path of color to your door or a splash of color in a container.
