Product Overview

Viola x wittrockiana 'Cool Wave'
A true trailing, cool weather pansy for fall through spring ; creates a big impact in borders, beds, or containers; a stunning, long lasting display of flowers with bright yellow centers and fine black streaks

Cool Wave Pansy is an herbaceous annual with a trailing habit of growth, eventually spilling over the edges of hanging baskets and containers. Its relatively fine texture sets it apart from other garden plants with less refined foliage.

This plant will require occasional maintenance and upkeep, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. Gardeners should be aware of the following characteristic(s) that may warrant special consideration:

  • Self-Seeding

Cool Wave Pansy is recommended for the following landscape applications:

  • Mass Planting
  • Border Edging
  • General Garden Use
  • Groundcover
  • Container Planting
  • Hanging Baskets

Features

Cool Wave Pansy has masses of beautiful flowers at the ends of the stems from fall through spring, which are most effective when planted in groupings. Its crinkled oval leaves remain green in color throughout the season. The fruit is not ornamentally significant.

 

Planting & Growing

Cool Wave Pansy will grow to be only 6 inches tall at maturity extending to 8 inches tall with the flowers, with a spread of 30 inches. When grown in masses or used as a bedding plant, individual plants should be spaced approximately 24 inches apart. It grows at a fast rate.

This plant does best in full sun to partial shade. It prefers to grow in average to moist conditions, and shouldn't be allowed to dry out. It is not particular as to soil type or pH. It is highly tolerant of urban pollution and will even thrive in inner city environments. Consider covering it with a thick layer of mulch in winter to protect it in exposed locations or colder microclimates. This particular variety is an interspecific hybrid.

Cool Wave Pansy is a fine choice for the garden, but it is also a good selection for planting in outdoor containers and hanging baskets. Because of its trailing habit of growth, it is ideally suited for use as a 'spiller' in the 'spiller-thriller-filler' container combination; plant it near the edges where it can spill gracefully over the pot. Note that when growing plants in outdoor containers and baskets, they may require more frequent waterings than they would in the yard or garden.
