A Cool Season Thrivers selection - the perfect partner to Pansy Pals™ varieties or early Spring and Autumn sales!

Taller and more spreading than other small-flowered types, Rain varieties make a big impact in baskets and containers, cascading best in cooler conditions. This collection of mounded/spreading pansies and violas also produces a good, quick-colour groundcover, performing well in Autumn, surviving through extreme Winter temperatures with proper care, and emerging again in Spring for a fresh show of colour. Under early Spring conditions, Rain flowers 2 to 4 weeks earlier than others on the market – this is the fastest-flowering series available. Vigorous, mounded plants produce 1.5-in./4-cm blooms.
