Pansy plants and violas, their smaller relatives, give months of pleasure in beds, borders and containers. The winter-flowering varieties will give your garden a welcome splash of colour when most other plants are dormant. Pansy flowers are edible and look stunning crystallised and used as cake decorations.
Pansy 'Tasty Collection' F1 Hybrid
Viola x wittrockiana
Like most Viola plants, the pretty flowers of Pansy 'Tasty Collection' are perfectly edible. These hardy summer pansies have been specially selected for their flavoursome blooms which have a mild, sweet and peppery taste. Perfect for delicious decorations for cakes and puddings, as well as salads and savoury tarts. Use them to dress up cheese plates or freeze them into ice cubes and add to your favourite drinks. Height and spread: 23cm (9").
Culinary note: Some parts of these flowers are edible. The crystallised petals are great decorations for cakes and cookies, or they can be added straight to green salads for an injection of colour. For more details about edible flowers click here.More info
