Blotch Blue Pansy has a dark, almost black face in the center surrounded by a field of blue. Pansies are the cold weather plant of choice for late fall, winter and early spring color. Pansies are exceptionally 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 up into April.
You can spruce up your salads by adding pansies. They are edible and have a sweet to tangy flavor. Use in place of parsley or kale as a fancy and colorful garnish. You can also sugar pansies and decorate cakes or cookies. Be sure to wash them thoroughly to remove bugs and dirt.
