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
3 Christina Kerr
4 Blackfaulds Gem
5 John Rodgers
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.
