What temperature can pansies survive?

Although pansies may survive the winter in many locations, they later succumb to the heat in the summer. These flowers prefer mild temperatures and do not tolerate temperatures above 65 degrees very well.

Likewise, what temperature will kill pansies?

Areas much further north than zone 6 are tricky and may have winter weather that kills pansies. When the temperature gets down to about 25 degrees Fahrenheit (-4 Celsius), flowers and foliage will begin to wilt, or even freeze.

Secondly, when can I put pansies outside? Pansies are hardy in zones 6 and up, and each zone has a slightly different planting window. In general, the ideal time to plant pansies is late September for zones 6b and 7a, early October for zone 7b, and late October for zones 8a and 8b.

Also, will pansies survive the summer?

Pansies love full sun in cool climates, but in the warmer areas of USDA zones 8 through 11, pansies need shade to survive into early summer. Pansy seeds germinate best when the temperature is between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit.

How do you keep pansies alive in the winter?

All Dressed Up

  1. Give them a minimum of four hours of direct sunlight.
  2. Feed them with a water-soluble, liquid fertilizer every two to three weeks.
  3. Remove old flowers.
  4. Water plants prior to a hard freeze. This is especially true for pansies in pots.
  5. Provide a light pine straw cover to reduce damage during a hard freeze.
