    We had some temperatures in the mid 20's the other night. The pansies that I planted have wilted. The green leaves look alright, but the actual flower part does't look good. Should I pull off the wilted pedals. And will new flowers grow back on?

    Just leave them alone.When the temp rises,they'll perk right up.

    ya bob, we planted all our commercial accounts with pansies the other day and they didnt look so good after the other night, but they perked right back up today when it was warm.

    Those pansies can take just about anything short of a nuclear strike

    We plant ours in Oct. and were pulling them out now to plant our warm season annuals. They will be fine!!

    Yep, they'll be just fine. Planted mine last Oct. and they're blooming like crazy. Be sure to dead head them often and you'll get tons of new blooms.
