Winter Flowering Hiemalis Pansy

         
 
5 Reviews | Write a Review
 
 
(Viola hiemalis) “Hiemalis” refers to wintertime in Latin, and these are a unique species, indeed flowering very early, which can in fact mean winter. The 6-7”’ tall plants flower freely, and the wide range of velvety pansy colors look so cheery, signaling the winter’s impending end. The plants bear smaller flowers than florist types; the blooms are about the size of Violas, but the variety carries its weight by its cold tolerance, blooming happily in 45 degree soil and shrugging off temps down to 6 degrees. Also called Ice Pansy.

What are the pros? Fragrance, colors, hardiness

What are the cons? None

Review:

I planted the seeds in Jiffy seed starter mix last September. I transplanted the healthy little seedlings to a small bed near the end of our driveway when they were well-rooted. I had ammended the bed with peat moss and raised it up because our soil is heavy with a good bit of red clay content. It is a very good thing that I raised it up because we have had a lot of wet weather for a year. The pansies are beginning to bloom more now and in a nice variety of colors. We have a solid deep purple with longish stems, a white with a face and shorter stems, canary yellow with a face, a lighter shade of purple that is solid, a pretty shade of sky blue, a wine shade and maybe another color. When we pick them I can’t smell a fragrance until they are placed in a small vase and are sitting on the kitchen table. Their fragrance begins to develop and it is so pleasant. I had never heard of ice pansies until I saw them advertised here. It is so worth the wait of starting them from seeds!

Review:

Just as the previous reviewer noted, these were not the variety depicted. They all came up with beautiful, solid-colored deep violet blooms.

What are the pros? Good germination, easy care

What are the cons? Not Hiemalis!

Review:

I purchased these seeds last fall expecting them to produce smaller, multi-colored blooms with different patterns and markings. Instead, I was pretty bummed when my 10 or so plants produced the exact same, large deep violet bloom with no yellow. The flowers were pretty enough but not what I purchased. Bummer. I won't likely purchase flower seeds again here

What are the pros? cold hardy, heat tolerant

What are the cons? nothing!

Review:

These pansies are rockstars. I started them indoors and set them out super duper duper early (after hardening off, of course). Planted them close together in so-so soil. They quickly filled in a large space and began blooming. They are a vast assortment of colors and patterns. And as the other nice gardener who reviewed mentioned, these pansies were shockingly heat tolerant for me as well. I mean high desert, scorching sun, sagebrush-down-the-street heat tolerant. 100 *F temps. They didn't even get lanky. Just stayed compact and awesome. Never once deadheaded and the bloom has been constant now for over 5 months. They did have a consistent water source. With that, these are the pansies for me. It's hard to plant other pansies and not wish you had more of these.

What are the pros? Does great even in heat.

What are the cons? none

Review:

I bought these for the cold weather qualities, but unlike regular pansies these hold up during extreme heat. I did plant them on the shady side of the house, but we've had several straight weeks of high temps (many days in the 90's) and they look as good as they did in the spring.
