This pansy stays small, but what it lacks in size, it makes up for in bloom power! It was blooming when I put it out in the first part of June and is still blooming today in Sept. It has bloomed well both in my rock garden and in containers. Its colors are very intense and bright. It is a beautiful little plant.
