Growing Pansies and Violas adds a bright spot to any winter garden.
They are just adorable with their sweet ‘faces’ and vibrant colors.
Are you growing them? Can you tell them apart?
This is how you can tell Pansies and Violas apart
Pansies have 4 petals pointing upward and only 1 pointing down.
Violas have 3 petals pointing upward and 2 pointing down.
Both are good for containers, borders and ground covers. Pansies & Violas are treated as annuals, due to their leggy growth, but are very hardy in cold weather.
Tiny & mighty are these plants. The terms “pansy” and “shrinking violet” do not pertain to their namesakes at all.
