Pansy Viola wittrockiana Delta 'Premium Beaconsfield'

Pansy

The Beaconsfield pansy is a combination of dark purple (lower petals) and very light blue (upper petals) that almost takes on a tie-dye effect. The Delta series offers extreme uniformity in timing and habit with an outstanding heat tolerance. They also rebound well from extreme weather, are extra early and free flowering, and generally have minimal stretching.

Quite possibly the most popular and recognizable fall annual, pansies come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes. The flower size of pansies ranges from 2½” to 4” depending on the type. They are compact low-growers, making them ideal for edging, rock walls and paths. Pansies planted in the fall generally have more uniform 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.
