Daily Flower Candy: Pansy ‘Matrix Cassis’

The candy jar has been rather empty of late, so I am topping it up today with pansy ‘Matrix Cassis’, planted in a pot at the edge of our pond in London.  This is a new hybrid series which has been bred for bushiness as well as flowers – the plants are meant to stay compact and nicely branched rather than becoming leggy.  Recently planted, they are still blooming now.  When the cold weather finally comes they’ll take a brief rest until early spring and we’ll be able to enjoy the blackcurrant-stained flowers for several months.

  1. I love pansies, and this one is beautiful. They were my Mom’s favorite flower, and I planted them for her every year. I think of her whenever I see them – good memories. And, they sure wouldn’t be blooming here – 9 degrees this morning. Winter has arrived in NH. Enjoy any blooms you have. 🙂
