Answer: In my experience, pansies are not worth keeping once the heat sets in. They look terrible, take up space in the garden, and their survival is iffy at best. Some newer varieties are more heat tolerant than others, so you might take a chance with them. If you decide to try, cut them back hard and be sure they get plenty of water and nutrients for the rest of the summer. If possible, give them some shade during the heat of the day. Good luck!
