Pansy ‘Ultima Morpho’ August 25, 2008

My mom raised a bunch of Ultima Morpho pansies from seed one year and gave me some. They have kept coming back for years, true to type, their cheerful little faces providing bright spots in the spring and again in late summer and fall.

'Ultima Morpho' Pansy

My favorite kind of annual, the self-seeding, no-care kind!

Extra bonus – they’re edible, a cute addition to salads or a garnish for goat cheese or cupcakes.

    These are lovely. I like the delicate color. Down here (in Alabama) our pansies burn up by early May, and don’t thrive again until Christmas time. It’s nice to see one in summer!

    Hi Val –

    They definitely like things to be a bit on the cool side. I am so happy that they volunteer, I used to have to plant them in my previous garden but now they just come up by themselves! Hope you get to see some pretty soon down your way, they are just the cutest.

    – Karen
