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.
