Tough New Pansies

New varieties of pansies have bushier, less floppy habits and more vigorous root systems. And they're generally hardy to the low 20s or even 0° (when mulched or covered with snow).

In mild climates, set out plants in fall for winter-to-spring bloom. In cold-winter areas, wait until spring (or plant next August for overwintering).

Choose a site that gets sun or bright, filtered light. (In hot zones, plant in partial shade.) Plant in well-drained soil with plenty of compost. Remove spent flowers to keep blooms coming.
