Single Packet of 600 Seeds
Heavily ruffled and delightfully beautiful, both of which describe the Rococo Pansy perfectly. Pronounced Row-coa-coa, this variety of Pansy will produce ruffled blooms in many various shades of yellow, violet, pink, white and rose. Each flower opens up to a diameter of about 1.5 to 2 inches wide, and will display an angel shaped center. The plants themselves will reach a mature height of roughly 6 to 8 inches tall.
Their short height makes them a perfect choice for window boxes, pots and containers. But the fun doesn’t stop there, because they are also popularly used as a border plant, along driveways, walkways and paths as well. These cheery blooms will attract all sorts of beneficial insects to the garden, including butterflies, bumblebees and honeybees.
Categorized as an annual flowering plant, Rococo Pansies are grown primarily for their beautiful, vibrant flowers, which last for a single growing season. If the plants seed by the end of the Autumn season, they can drop this seed to the bare ground beneath, allowing them to regrow the following year.

Sowing The Seed
Rococo Pansy seeds can be started indoors, or directly outdoors. If started indoors, sow seeds in peat pots, 1/16” under topsoil, 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost. Transplant when the weather becomes warm. Direct sow outdoors by clearing the sowing area of all unwanted plant life. Turn the soil or lay down new soil in it’s place. Scatter seeds to the ground.
Rococo Pansy seeds & plants prefer an area of full sunlight in cooler regions or partial shade in warmer regions. They will tolerate a variety of soils but prefer the soil to be well drained. Water daily with a spray bottle or mist setting so that the soil is kept moist until germination has occurred. Avoid overwatering, or soaking the seeds as this can cause them to die.
Germination & Growth
Your seeds will begin to show signs of life within 7 to 14 days after sowing. The plants will grow to a mature height of about 6 to 8 inches tall and don’t mind being a little crowded. The plants can be spaced anywhere from 4 to 8 inches apart from one another. After they are fully established, you can begin to enjoy the colorful blooms, and the beautiful butterflies that they bring in.
