Pansy Viola wittrockiana Colossus 'Red with Blotch'

Pansy

Ooh la la, take a look at this sassy pansy. The vibrant red tone with a deep colored center will catch the eye of anyone walking past your garden.  This popular series features extra large upward facing blooms, a tight plant habit and prevents stretching during warm conditions. The Colossus series has been shown to be a great improvement to the well known Majestic Giant Series. The Colossus Series have extra-large blooms measuring about 4" in diameter.

& Maintenance Tips

Plant them in well-prepared sunny to partly shady beds, making sure they get at least 3 hours of sun each 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 far from high-maintenance, but as with most bedding plants, they may require a little TLC to add a gorgeous touch to your garden.
