Pansies at Behnke Nurseries

Pansies are Tough! You've probably heard of "zone denial" - planting things that are marginally winter hardy in an area and hoping they make it through, by mulching, planting against a south facing wall, praying, and so on. Some years they do, some they don't. ("It grows in Mexico, maybe it'll make it here, oh please oh please oh please.") For the rest of us, we can plant flowers that are cold-temperature tolerant to start with, and, for that, nothing beats pansies.

    We live on Long Island (NY) and would like to know if pansies and violas can be planted in ground or in pots and come back year after year.
