As we head into the fall season, our outdoor gardens have to shift and transform with the weather. Summer blooms are beginning to fade, and the time has come to bring in some cool weather flowers! Pansies + violas are some of the toughest cool season annuals. If they’re planted in the early fall, they’ll begin blooming that season, through the winter and into the spring. So what are the differences between pansies + violas, and which will work best in your garden?
Now is a great time to re-fresh those tired container gardens and add a pop of color to beds and borders with fall and winter blooming pansies. As compact, low growers, pansies are ideal for edging and for squeezing between rock walls and paths, and are an excellent choice for containers, baskets or in-ground beds. With tons of color varieties to choose from, these hardy annual plants will provide vibrant color in the landscape now through the chill of winter and early spring, fading only when the heat of next summer sets in. An added plus? They are super easy to grow, and we have tons of fresh, beautiful pansies arriving now weekly at Garden Supply Co.
