Multi-Season, Uniform Flowering | Heat and Cold Tolerant

Days to Maturity: 84

Delta™ Premium Yellow with Purple Wing Pansy is a large-flowered evergreen perennial, usually grown as a cool weather annual or biennial, offering early spring and late summer/early fall interest, blooming all winter in mild climates. Uniform and long blooming, the plants produce cheerful, 3-inch, up-facing, clear yellow flowers with a pretty face and purple top petals. Borne singly on short, upright stems, the fragrant flowers make adorable kitchen table bouquets or cheeky additions to floral displays. And butterflies flock to them.

Delicate looking but tough and highly adaptable, these hardy herbaceous plants have a tidy, tightly branched, mounding habit of medium to dark green leaves. For best effect, mass plant or group. Pansies are perfect for containers and hanging baskets but also work well in beds and borders.

Pansies grow best in sunny to dappled shade locations with loose, rich, humusy, organic soil, having an acidic pH of 5.5 to 5.9. But they will grow in almost any moist, well-draining soil. The plants are heat and cold tolerant and disease and pest resistant. Deadheading spent flowers promotes new blooms and prolongs bloom time.

In the North, sow pansy seed indoors in cool, bright conditions about 6 to 8 weeks prior to setting out. Water sparingly until plugs are fully rooted. The plants thrive in cool weather and tolerate light frost and cold night temperatures. Acclimatize them outdoors 7 to 10 days prior to transplanting. In the South, plants can be grown for fall and winter flowering. Sow seed indoors in midsummer, 6 to 8 weeks before transplanting into the garden after the cooler weather arrives.
