Pansy / Viola

 

(Viola x wittrockiana) Pansies as we know them today are descended from the wild viola, native to Europe, and the wild pansy, which is believed to have grown wild in France. In the 1800s gardener William Thompson crossed the two to make viola x wittrockiana, or Pansy. The small, delicate blooms of this cold-hardy annual are surprisingly rugged. But pansies do suffer in the heat of summer. They prefer full sun to shade, but the hotter the location, the more shade they need. Pansy requires rich, well-drained, moist soil. Press seeds into soil and cover lightly, as they germinate in darkness. Ideal germination temperature is 60-70F. Seeds will germinate in 7-14 days. Space plants 6-9 inches apart.
