I could not stop taking photos.
I am going to show these awesome Spring flowers in a few posts.
(Can’t put them all together!)
The pansy or pansy violets are a large group of cheerful looking hybrid plants cultivated as garden flowers.
The modern garden pansy had its origin in the Iver, Buckinghamshire, estate of James, Lord Gambier, whose gardener William Thompson began about 1813 crossing various viola species with Viola tricolor.
A wide range of flower colours including yellow, gold, orange, purple, red and violet, and many with large showy face markings, are available as a result of enthusiastic pansy breeding.
These plants are generally very cold hardy and able to survive freezing conditions even during their blooming period. Plants grow well in sunny or partially sunny positions in well draining soils.
Enjoy the beauty of their pretty faces!
