Will the pansies I planted this fall bloom again, or do they die, and new ones need to be planted?

Pansies are perennials but are short lived in many areas, so they are generally grown as annuals or biennials. They can reseed themselves as well. Pansies can take cold temperatures below 20F and survive, so you should be able to enjoy them into the middle of winter. To get them to survive until spring, you may have to mulch them with chopped leaves or bark mulch or protect them with a floating row cover during the coldest months of January and February.
