A lovely cluster of dainty slightly pink flowers before the sun bleaches them white.

MA I was going to ask for ages , what diameter and height is the pot you have Petite Pink in .I have to put mine in a bigger pot later .
Also have you noticed your is pinker now that the first time if flowered.
Mine has a pink tinge on the edge .
My Pink Pansy is doing ok since it was planted out of the pot , huge leaves.

Gwen this is the first time I have put a pic of this one on this season.

Being the first cluster of flowers its always a little pinker and it was a grey very early morning when I took that photo the sun was not even up , and that helps for a better colour as well, as the sun makes it a lot whiter in colour and also bleaches the pink out of it.. I have had it three years at the end of this month so maybe age may have something to do with it the colour also..

Good to hear that your Pink Pansy is coming on well its a lovely pure white colour Very Happy

Big leaves is right I took this pic early 07 with a leaf from my named Fruit Salad plant.
JL Pink Pansy leaves would have to be three times bigger so is the trunk and branches.



Gwen I will grab the torch and a tape and go and find out for you..

The size of the pot its 55cms wide and 40 cms deep.

That's close enough to 22 inches wide and 16 inches deep.
