Pretty blue, purple, white mix!

5 out of 5 stars Jul 3, 2021
Love love loved these pansies and the color mix they came in. The soft blue varieties with yellow centers are so sweet, and the white pansies with the royal blue/purple centers and the royal purple pansies with the yellow center were a nice surprise but very pretty. I paired them in a pot with some johnny jump ups and other violas and these pansies are bigger in size than those little violas, but not as huge as some of the giant pansies you might see for sale in the nurseries. I will definitely plant again as they were one of the earliest colors to pop up this spring.

Blue Pansy

5 out of 5 stars Jan 4, 2022
I really like the Blue Pansys, it took a couple times to get them started but when they did start, they stayed all summer, right through the worst of the heat. When fall came they perked up again. Currently, they are in my cold frame still alive. I'm excited to see if they'll make it through our Pennsylvania winter. These have been interesting flowers to follow. Thanks BI.

Beautiful Little Flowers

5 out of 5 stars Jan 16, 2022
I planted several of these flowers out in containers in October and since November they've been putting out absolutely beautiful flowers that range from bluish-grey, violet, to a deep dark purple that is almost black. My favorite are the flowers that are a bright white but have a dark purple center, again just absolutely beautiful. I plan on keeping these flowers and growing more.

Easy to grow long bloom time

5 out of 5 stars Feb 26, 2022
I seeded indoors late March. They held up well in June-July heat (kept in shade) & fizzled out slowly by late August (mostly my fault for not watering). Easy to germinate, although I was unsure if they need darkness to germinate? I kept a cardboard box over the tray for 2 weeks after seeding incase and had success.

Owner Response: Hi Allison, Thanks for sharing your experience. You can find any special conditions or treatment recommendations on the back of the packet just below the sowing information. Darkness does aid pansy germination. From the packet, "Special germination instructions: Darkness aids germination; sow at recommended depth." Happy gardening!
