Based upon name alone, Cool Wave Pansies have just gotta be better than any other pansy, right? If you answered yes, then you’re correct, but not just because of the cool name. They grow to be 6- to 8-inches tall and offer better cold and heat resistance than standard pansies. Plus, they grow faster and feature better branch spreading…up to 2 feet wide.

That large spread in dimension means they’ll look great in fall hanging baskets, flower planters and even garden beds. They don’t require additional feeding or maintaining in any way, simply fertilize regularly to promote a healthy look with more flowers and larger leaves.

Home Depot associate Mike Duvall highlights Cool Wave Pansies in this week’s First Look video:

    We planted these Cool Wave Pansies last fall and they bloomed all winter here in MA. Even with the snow, once the snow melted the pansies came back and bloomed. These are amazing and so wonderful to have bright flowers over the whole winter. We were the only house in the neighborhood with blooming flowers all winter with the Cool Wave Pansies.

    Love these!

    I just got a couple of hanging baskets with these cool wave pansies in them. How often do I need to water?

    • Lynn Coulter says:

      Hi, Renee. Most flowers need 1″ of water a week during their active growing season. But that can vary depending on whether it’s warm where you live, whether there’s some wind that’s drying out the baskets, and so on. The best bet is to water when you can put your finger into the soil and it feels dry. Lynn, Home Depot Garden Club.

    I went to the Home Depot today to buy these pansys, and the lady in the garden department didn’t have a clue what I was asking for. I told her I got an email about them, and she said not all stores stock everything. Obviously the lousy store here doesn’t stock them. What a waste of my time. I will go to Lowe’s next time for plants.
