Pansy Viola wittrockiana Panola 'Purple XP'

Pansy

Panola Purple XP is a gorgeous deep purple pansy. Panola genetics deliver a tight 5-7 day flowering window with a very uniform habit. They have been known as the ultimate multi-season landscape and garden series.  They do great in the winter, are free flowering, well branched, compact and early blooming. They stretch less in warmer climates. Medium flowered Panolas hold up better in the winter months when beaten down by rain and snow because the petals are small and thicker. The Panola series have medium sized blooms at 2.5-3" in diameter.

& Maintenance Tips

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