By Allen Owings, LSU AgCenter horticulturist The ideal planting time for cool-season bedding plants in Louisiana runs from late September through early December. Some of our common cool-season flowers prefer the earlier planting dates while others prefer the later dates. Pansies and their dwarf cousin violas do better when they’re planted after temperatures have cooled off. The LSU AgCenter recommends late October through early December as a planting window. When properly cared for, pansies will last into late April and early May in most years. Pansies are our most-popular landscape flower for late fall through early spring, but violas are gaining more market share. You see more violas in home and commercial landscapes these days.
