Coolwave Raspberry Swirl Pansy
Viola x wittrockiana. The Cool Wave collection is easy to grow with its vigorous growth habit and tolerance to cool temperatures. The blossoms with their beautiful bright colours and cheery happy faces last throughout the season with very little maintenance. These plants can be grown as a ground cover in your garden or will fill any container.
Usually grown as annuals but pansies are so hardy that they will often over-winter depending on conditions. Ideal for growing in locations with short, cool seasons or for adding that splash of colour when other annuals haven’t fully opened. Low maintenance and non-stop blooming all summer long. Height 6-8". Approx. 10 seeds/pkg.

Usually sold and grown as annuals, but often overwinter dependably. Start inside 8 weeks before planting out. Lightly cover seed, provide total darkness and normal room temperatures. Should germinate in 10-20 days. May also be direct seeded into the garden in early spring or early autumn. Transplant outside in early spring into a part shade location.
Only plant in full sun in areas with cool summers. Very frost tolerant and prefers cool, moist conditions. Provide rich, moist well-drained soil. A mulch is often helpful. Deadhead regularly to ensure that plants bloom all season. Self-seeds.
