These Pansies have the classic whiskered face that I love that is hard to find nowadays. Many of them have been bred to be one solid color but I like these old fashioned ones better.

A beautiful banner Zoia. Smiling I hadn't realized that these striped ones were older cultivars.

As a small child (2-5) I was in a small room in a crib with pansy curtains in the windows. I thought they were little men with funny mustaches and I remember talking to them. As an adult gardener, I have never not included pansies in my spring pots or bedding schemes…30 years of pansies! What would Spring be without them?
