True Blue Pansy


Pansy
Viola x wittrockiana 'Delta True Blue'
(vy-OH-la) (wit-rok-ee-AH-nuh)

While the Pansy has always been a symbol of spring to me more and more they are making appearances in the fall. They make a nice display in the autumn garden and are a nice change from mums and Asters.

The Delta series seems to be a popular one and these were spotted at the local wholesale nursery. I enjoyed walking by the huge carts loaded up with them for the blast of color and fragrance. Last year was the first year in many that our Pansies overwintered. I am not sure which one those were but they were beautiful all the way up until May.

I love pansies through the winter. Their cheery little faces are great, even up through the snow!
