The well-known large-flowered pansy variety with usually a large black patch in the centre of the flower. A mix with many velvety, warm colours. The flowers of pansies are edible. All pansies are generally biennials, but the annual culture is recommended. Sow early in the spring, if necessary in an unheated greenhouse, prick out or transplant directly from the seedbed to the final spot. Those shaded yellow are biennials.
