Pansy Swiss Giant Berna Velvet Blue. This gorgeous pansy variety features huge flowers in a range of colours, making it one of the most desirable open-pollinated types now on the market. Although they bloom a little later than winter varieties, these bushy plants grow to a height of 15–25 cm and produce an abundance of enormous, spectacular flowers that measure 75cm across. They are ideal for growing in flower beds, containers, and hanging baskets. The Swiss Giant is a hardy annual that can flower the same year from early sowing and will gladly overwinter as a bi-annual in a sheltered position if given the opportunity.

Seed Quantity: 100 Seeds

Type Perennial
