Cool Wave Pansies were introduced a few years after Wave Petunias became such a huge hit with gardeners. Cool Wave Pansies are the next step in the Wave that provides gardeners an option to keep their Waves of color going through the fall, winter and into spring.
Cool Waves are a trailing pansy with mid-sized blooms that are 2-2.5″ wide. The bright colors offered in Cool Wave spill out in waves of color across flower beds and landscapers and over the sides of borders, retaining walls, containers and hanging baskets.
Cool Wave Pansies are vigorous and will spread like a ground cover in landscapes. They can be planted individually to add spots of color that can brighten up cool, dreary days. They are very tough and in addition to being able to handle hot temperatures, Cool Waves are also very cold hardy. We have seen them survive a week of hard freezes where the day temperature barely got above freezing.
To maximize your Pansy enjoyment, plant pansies in late September or October and enjoy them all fall, winter and up into April.
