The Profile


The modern southern garden should include tried & true annuals that perform well in cool weather. Pansies are a reliable cool-weather bloom that perk up spaces just as spring begins to emerge. They come in a variety of lovely color combinations & feature petals that create a heart-shaped pattern once open. Although they are technically a biennial, pansies are treated as an annual flower. They are a member of the violaceae family & grow approximately 8-inches tall. Learn how to make these petite blooms the focal point of your entertaining spaces.

The Technique

Pansies make a lovely selection to showcase in containers to perk up front doors & garden beds. They grow well when planted in moist, rich well-drained soil so elevating them just a bit above ground in a raised bed offers the best drainage to keep them thriving during wet weather. Pansies make lovely cut flowers for small needs. Snip stems & accompany with creeping Jenny or sprigs of boxwood. Create the arrangements in clear glass jars, low containers or petite-sized bud vases. Sprinkle the blooms throughout entertaining spaces on window sills, vanities & sinks.
