33F with high of 55F. Kinda cold outside.
I planted pansies last spring and then over-wintered them, and they did drop a LOTPansies don't actually "come back", they're annuals. What they do do is drop seed that can germinate and make a new batch.
Same here; besides those self-seeded ones, I also got one specific plant that successfully overwintered outside. That's amazing. I carefully checked it and am sure that the new shoots are from the original plant that I plugged in last summer.I planted pansies last spring and then over-wintered them, and they did drop a LOT
of seed. There must be a thousand 1/2" tall seedlings sprouting. The original 'mother' plants made it through the winter too, because here in the Pacific Northwest pansies are very hardy. They go dormant during the winter, and then take off growing again come spring. Out of curiosity I tried looking up pansies and some say they are 'short-lived perennials', with one site saying they are biennials. In our zone they definitely grow like biennials in that they are sown in summer, they over-winter, and then they set seed the following year. Whatever they are, most people certainly treat them as annuals.
