Pansy Colossus 'TriColor' 6 Pack
Colossus TriColor purple flowers have white and yellow markings with dark central blotches. It is primarily dark purple with a vibrant neon blue ring around the center of the petal. This popular series features extra large upward facing blooms, a tight plant habit and prevents stretching during warm conditions. They are compact low-growers, making them ideal for edging and rock walls and paths. Pansies planted in the fall generally have more uniform and bloom, and grow slightly larger flowers than their spring companion pansies. The popular Colossus series has been shown to be a great improvement to the well known Majestic Giant Series. The Colossus Series have extra-large blooms measuring about 4" in diameter.

Homeowner Growing & Maintenance Tips
Plant them in well-prepared sunny to partly shady beds, making sure they get at least 3 hours of sun a day. Make sure you leave the crown of leaves above the soil because planting them too deeply can lead to root rot. They grow best in a loose, rich soil with regular water. Don’t over-water or they will begin to look disheveled. These colorful plants are nowhere near high-maintenance, but as with most bedding plants, they require a little TLC to add a gorgeous touch to your garden.
