What are the pros? Prolific once it gets going
What are the cons? Not exactly black
Like all pansies this needed 10 weeks to start, and at first it seemed like it wasn't doing anything in the seed starting tray (at least not compared to the tomatoes, lettuce etc). I planted out in early May, one batch in full sun in a south yard, another in a planter box that gets lots of morning sun. The full-sun ones have succumbed to rabbits and heat now in July, but the planter box is flowering like gangbusters still. They aren't demanding plants at all. Now as to the flowers, I confess I was hoping for something closer to true black - these are definitely deep dark *purple*, even from a distance. Perhaps something in the soil or conditions that influences that.
