Will pansies survive 20 degree temps in NE? The local garden center started selling them last weekend when it was 70.

    Pansies prefer day temperatures in the 60's and nighttime temperatures 40+. I would wait for the weather to be consistently 45 and above before I would consider planting pansies. Pansies may survive 20 degree temperatures but their foliage probably would suffer (wilt and discolor).
