More Florist Flower recognition-Show pansies

This time I am putting some  FLORIST SHOW PANSIES on the site.


Show pansies were the only Florist types years ago  when the wild “heartsease” was changed from an unremarkable field “weed” to  a flower which gardeners of the day, with all consuming obsession of must haves, in the late1800’s.decided they had to own and display. 


These shown are;=



1 Alec Blackwood


2 Ann


3 Christina Kerr


4 Blackfaulds Gem


5 John Rodgers


6 Penelope


7 Tom Mclatchie.


It is likely the some of the above may no longer be in cultivation.


John Rodgers for example may no longer exist in Scotland I have been informed.


A list of cultivars recorded some few years ago regarding show pansies in on an earlier post on this site if anyone is interested.
