Coolwave Strawberry Swirl Pansy
Viola x wittrockiana. The Coolwave Series is the best spreading pansy and is so easy to grow with its vigorous growth habit and tolerance to cool temperatures. The blossoms last throughout the season with very little maintenance and will delight you with their beautiful bright colours and cheery happy faces. These plants can be grown as a ground cover in your garden or will fill any hanging basket or container. The mix contains white, frost, yellow and violet wing. 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.
