Kinky: Yes, AZ but high desert. No Yucca desired. Had all that stuff in Chandler (low desert) and glad to be rid of it. But thanks anyhow.

Just went to the nursery today and saw rows of Pansies in all colors. Apparently they do not die over the winter in this climate. At least that's what the worker said. Hard to believe that when it snows, they can survive. It's not alot of snow, but still. I am amazed and thrilled !!

The nurseries here are all selling winter pansies now. I planted some in autumn last year and they all survived last winter with a lot of snow and below freezing temps. The blossoms are long lasting and were still intact and fresh after all the snow melted off them. They continued blooming all through this year and are now putting on a new burst of extra flower growth since we started getting some freezing temps here a few days ago. I think they must like the cold temperatures, they seem to perk up and flourish in it.

Pansies are beautiful and bloom continuously throughout the winter especially if they are fertilized. I usually start out with good soil, compost and slow release fertilizer as well. They like good drainage and once established donít need much water. I just planted a couple of pots at my house. They look especially beautiful if planted in drifts.
