A great contrast of colors, a deep purple face that accentuates the clear, crisp white flower.

How to Grow
Transplant the hardened-off seedlings to the garden after the last heavy frost to an area in full sun with rich, moist, well-drained soil. (If seedlings are hardened off, they will tolerate light frost.) In areas with hot summers, you may plant pansies in partial shade. Set plants at least 6" apart. Deadhead pansies--or pick the flowers frequently--to keep them blooming. Blooms in spring, summer.
Pansies are perfect for the front of beds, borders, rock gardens, and edgings. They also look beautiful in small bouquets as well as patio containers and window boxes.
