Product Description

The garden pansy is a type of large-flowered hybrid plant cultivated as a garden flower.[1] It is derived by hybridization from several species in the section Melanium (“the pansies”)[2] of the genus Viola, particularly Viola tricolor, a wildflower of Europe and western Asia known as heartsease. Some of these hybrids are referred to as Viola × wittrockiana Gams ex Nauenb. & Buttler. For simplicity, the older name Viola tricolor var. hortensis is often used.

The garden pansy flower is 5 to 8 centimetres (2 to 3 in) in diameter and has two slightly overlapping upper petals, two side petals, and a single bottom petal with a slight beard emanating from the flower’s center. These petals are usually white or yellow, purplish, or blue.[3] The plant may grow to 23 cm (9 in) in height, and prefers sun to varying degrees and well-draining soils.
