Pansies are growing in gardens during the winter in the South or Southwest and during the Spring and Fall seasons in the North America. The fragrant and edible blooms are desirable in gardens. The garden pansy is a type of large-flowered hybrid plant cultivated as garden flowers. It is derived by hybridization from several species in the section Melanium of the genus Viola, particularly Viola tricolor, a wildflower of Europe and western Asia known as heartsease.
