(MS) - For instant gratification and color and easy care, you can t go wrong with all the colors and varieties of pansies. They are easy to plant and can liven up an area that may need some great flower performers, such as around the base of a tree, or in front of your garden s green plants, or in a container.
Pansies that Fernlea Flowers have introduced from Europe throughout North America, adding new colors every year, include these three unique fanciful varieties:
Big Shot Pansies are the world s biggest pansies. They can be planted as soon as the soil is ready for digging. Also, BigShots are hardy, as they will withstand, in those colder climates, the recurring frosts that are associated with early spring or fall weather. Colors range from white, wine, blue and yellow with a dark faced center.
Flamenco Pansies look like they are ready to dance up a storm with their ruffled petals and bright colors. Their colors range from Pastel and Grape Shades to Blue Lace, Garnet and Yellow.
Hot Chilly Pansies are a hardy and keen flower wanting to please you by blooming and lasting through the hottest and coldest temperatures. There are a wide variety of shades offered; all have exciting, contrasting faces in various shades of yellow and purple, pink, white and blue.
And remember, yellow pansies are the brightest color that you can see from a distance or for that dark corner in your garden that needs some livening up. They mix well with your early bloomers like tulips and daffodils.
