The pansy is an annual or a short-lived perennial and grows about 15 to 30 cm (6 to 12 inches) tall. Heart-shaped or rounded leaves sprout from the base, and oblong or oval leaves grow from the stems.
How do you care for a pansy?
Water pansies regularly through the growing season, but allow soil to dry slightly between waterings. The drier soil conditions also help pansies harden off and tolerate cold. Protecting: During flowering season, organic mulch protects soil moisture and discourages weeds.
