What temperature can I plant pansies?
Also asked, what is the best time to plant winter pansies?
Ideally, plant your pansy seeds in borders or pots during September and early October – this will give them a better chance to grow sturdy roots and flowers.
Additionally, how hardy are pansies? Pansies are hardy winter flowers that tolerate cold snaps in Mediterranean climates of U.S. Department of Agriculture plant hardiness zones 8 to 10, as well as light snowfalls in USDA zones 4 to 7. To protect themselves from cold, pansy plants turn greenish-gray when the thermometer drops below 25 F.
Accordingly, where should I plant pansies in my yard?
Pansies perform best in cooler weather, and are therefore usually planted in spring or fall. They like rich, well-drained soil high in organic matter, and full sun or partial shade. (Shade is especially beneficial south of Zone 7 where the hot afternoon sun will shut down flower production.)
What temperature will kill pansies?
Pansies are cool-weather biennials that are frost-hardy when dormant. Pansy roots can survive winter temperatures as low as minus 25 degrees under the soil. Actively growing seedlings can withstand light frost, but a deep freeze will kill the foliage.
