Matrix Pansy is a popular series of panisies for fall flower bed. This series comes in a rainbow of colors that can range from solid colors to blotch faces to ,multi-colored blooms. The plants have superior branching that is able to support the abundant amount of blooms that are produced by each plant. The short stems resist stretching and are able to keep the blooms upright.
Matrix pansy blooms are considered mid-sized but with their 3-3.5″ blooms they are definitely at the high end of the mid-sized pansies.
Pansies are THE cold weather plant of choice for late fall, winter and early spring color. They are exceptionally cold hardy and will thrive in the cool southern winter months. Farther north, they may go dormant, but will flush out and bloom again when temperatures warm up. To maximize your Pansy enjoyment, plant pansies in late September or October and enjoy them all fall, winter and into the spring.
Pansies need little attention in the garden besides an occasional watering. Typically in the fall and winter there is enough rain that they do not need watering by hand. However, they need regular watering during a dry winter. Also they will tolerate a hard freeze better if they are not stressed from being too dry when they freeze.
