Panola are unique cool season plants that are a hybrid crosses between pansies and violas. Panolas have the cold hardiness and high bloom count of violas and the larger (2-2.5″) bloom size of a pansy. They are like violas on steroids.
Pansies are the cold weather plant of choice for late fall, winter and early spring color. They are exceptionally hardy and will thrive in the cool southern winter months. Farther north, they may go dormant, but will flush out and bloom again when temperatures warm up. To maximize your Pansy enjoyment, plant pansies in late September or October and enjoy them all fall, winter and up into April.
