Color Story: Late Spring Pansies
In our region, spring has been cooler than usual. Though we can't wait for the arrival of warm weather, we're loving the longer season for pansies. Available in a dazzling array of colors, these cheerful blooms have been a spring garden favorite since early 19th-century England. Once thought of as weeds, these humble flowers experienced a striking wave of popularity during the Romantic period, when they became a garden staple and a fixture in poetry. During a recent visit to our Styer's nursery, we admired the color stories created by rows and rows of pansies in bloom, ranging from pure white to deep purples and crimsons.
