Southern Gardening: Flowering pansies add great landscape color
In my last column, I suggested gardeners shouldn’t jump the gun and pull out summer annuals that still look good.
But if you do have an open spot in your landscape, now is a good time to consider adding some cool-season color.
The pansy is one bedding plant that just can’t be beat in cool-season landscapes. As a group, pansies are great for outstanding cool-weather performance. The pansy series that has taken the landscape by storm is the Matrix. These pansies have quickly become one of the industry’s leading cool-season bedding plants.
Matrix pansies come in a wide range of colors. Many have the traditional pansy blotch, which is the dark coloration of the lower flower petals. Pansies with this look are sometimes known as being “faced.”
