Happy National Strawberry Day, Wave Fans! February 27th marks this annual occasion to celebrate one of the most loved fruits around the world. Strawberries have been impressing foodies with their sweet flavor AND health benefits for centuries. According to the California Strawberry Commission, strawberries are packed with vital nutrients, such as Vitamin C, Potassium, Fiber and Antioxidants, which help ward off chronic diseases.
Strawberries are also one of the first fruits to ripen every year, so they are often called the “taste of spring.” Do you know what else is the first to pop into color each spring? Cool Wave Pansies! And in 2019 we have a brand-new color to share ... NEW Strawberry Swirl!
Our Cool Wave Strawberry Swirl Pansy has a cute pink cap in the cool days of spring with a friendly yellow face to welcome the season. You’ll enjoy it best in flower-filled hanging baskets all the way to the heat of the season, and watch it spread and trail out of window boxes or patio containers.
Look for this new color and all of the seasonal hues of Cool Wave Pansies in your local garden retailer, or browse our mail-order partners for packets of Cool Wave Pansy seed.
Feast on a bowl of fresh strawberries today, or a scrumptious strawberry shortcake, and start spring dreaming of your Cool Wave garden!
