Pansies and Winter Color
Crave color in a leafless landscape? Pansies are the solution during cool months. Enjoy these hardy plants through the first snowfall, and watch them herald spring with new blooms into spring and early summer.
- Plant them in window boxes, containers, or even beds for color throughout the fall and again in the spring.
Pansies are available in a huge array of colors, spreading habits, sizes, and variegations.
Don't forget to water them! Keep these plants well-watered during sunny, dry weather.
Pansies looking a little beaten up in the spring? Give them a couple weeks, they'll perk up and give you new blooms once the stress of winter is over.
Oh, and they're edible! Try them in a salad or as a cocktail garnish.
