Pansy Viola wittrockiana Colossus 'Blotch Mix'

Additional Photos

Pansy

Colossus Blotch Mix features a great combination of white, red, rose, blue and yellow blooms—all with a dark centrally located blotch. This popular series features extra large upward facing blooms, a tight plant habit and prevents stretching during warm conditions. The popular Colossus series has been shown to be a great improvement to the well known Majestic Giant Series. The Colossus resists stretching during warm conditions and is perfect for Spring, late Summer, and Fall sales. The Colossus Series have extra-large blooms measuring about 4" in diameter.

They are compact low-growers, making them ideal for edging and rock walls and paths. Pansies planted in the fall generally have more uniform and bloom, and grow slightly larger flowers than their spring companion pansies.

& Maintenance Tips

Plant them in well-prepared sunny to partly shady beds, making sure they get at least 3 hours of sun a day. Make sure you leave the crown of leaves above the soil because planting them too deeply can lead to root rot. They grow best in a loose, rich soil with regular water. Don’t over-water or they will begin to look disheveled. These colorful plants are nowhere near high-maintenance, but as with most bedding plants, they require a little TLC to add a gorgeous touch to your garden.
