Purple Pansies

"Purple Pansies" is a chant that our high school basketball team had to endure from hostile crowds supporting the other team. I guess it's hard to look tough when you're wearing a purple uniform.

But these purple pansies are actually very tough! One of the best things about gardening in zone 7 is that you can plant pansies in the fall, and they bloom all winter long. One winter we even had an ice storm and my pansies were covered with a layer of ice, and they came back blooming within a week.

Purple pansies are not wussy!

I would love to plant pansies that could bloom all winter long. Maybe your basketball purple pansies could think about being purple people eaters. :)
