Fall Flower Bed Roundup

Every year we plant pansies, violas and other fall plants in the flower beds in front of our office. I wanted to do a post about how they performed.

First all you need to know that we had an exceptionally cold winter with several weeks at or below freezing. Among the Pansies, Panolas and Violas, I think that the Panolas and Violas recovered quicker and have more color than the Pansies.

These are the Stepables we planted last fall.

overwintered-stepables-flowerbed2 We planted some tulips in all the flowerbeds and here is one sprouting through Wooly Thyme in front of Archer’s Gold Thyme.

This is what’s left of one of the Plentifall Pansies we planted in our planters. I do need to say that these were regularly neglected and went through some very hard freezes very dry. The fact that that made it through with the neglect is a testament to their toughness. Properly watered before freezes and they would probably look much better. As it is, they look rough but are still alive. Some pruning and sunshine and they will be looking good again in a few weeks.

  • It's always disappointing finding a houseplant that you love, but know won't grow in your cozy bedroom. Many interesting plants can be grown indoors but usually ones that bloom, display bright colors, or produce fruit can need a lot of sun. Thankfully, plenty don't.
