Pansies, Melanium or viola, are also known as Viola x wittrockiana. Viola tricolor and Viola Jackanapes are also related and are a hardy variety of the same flower. They are perennials but usually are planted as annuals or biennials. You can plant them usually early to establish for spring in some climates you can plant them as early as September.

Melanium has four petals pointing upwards, with only one pointing down, but violets or Viola have two petals pointing up and three petals pointing down. They like the sun or partial shade and well-drained moist soil. Generally, Pansies bear flowers and seeds in its second year and then die but most hybrids do flower the first year. The flowers are both fragrant as well as edible. They are relatively disease-free.

About Online Flower Garden & Dino

I am a flower enthusiast and a gardener at heart. Ever since childhood I loved reading about plants and started gardening at an early age. First by helping my father in the garden and later managing a large garden myself in my teen years. I planted and cared for a large number of plants, flowers, and trees both outdoors and in a greenhouse. To this day I enjoy visiting gardens and parks and learning about new and old specimens and varieties of plants.
