It is a bit confusing. Pansies are typically grown as annuals, but are capable of surviving longer in mild climates so are technically perennials. In some areas they are planted out as fall bedding plants and then rebloom in spring. The plants tend to exhaust themselves by blooming so prolifically. Summer's heat usually does them in, but if not, they may repeat their performance.
