Here in central Virginia, on the cusp of hardiness zones 6b and 7a, we plant pansies in the fall and enjoy them during the fall, winter and spring, that is, whenever there's no snow to cover them up. They seem to love the cold, and all the snow we had this winter didn't seem to phase them a bit, but they hate heat. So, most people dig them up and toss them away because the heat will kill them anyway if left out. I'd like to try oversummering them inside. I have an unheated basement which might work. They are Canadian grown Deltas of various colors. Does anyone have experience with this?
