Pansy Viola wittrockiana 'Thunder Mix'

Pansy

Thunder Mix is a special mix for Sedan Floral. 

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 far from high-maintenance, but as with most bedding plants, they may require a little TLC to add a gorgeous touch to your garden.
