Gardens: It’s Time for Pansies
It’s fall, which means garden centers are full of pansies, which are cold hardy and will bloom in your garden all the way through spring. Anything but exotic, and not particularly fancy, pansies have been a favorite of gardeners since the 16th century. A member of the violet family, the Pansy gets its name from the French word pensée, meaning “thought.” It was so named because the flower is reminiscent of a human face that in the heat “nods” forward as if deep in thought. My favorite pansy related trivia, however, is that in early drafts of Gone With the Wind, Margaret Mitchell name the main character Pansy O’Hara. Now that would have been a true oxymoron.
Remember when trying to decide where and how to plant pansies and other flowers that for visual impact in your garden you’ll need to group enough together for impact.
