We are here to help as we share the top 12 pansies for each zodiac sign. Maybe you’ll find your decision in your own sign, or a different one entirely! 


Aquarius - Matrix White

January 20 - February 18

Being one of the first signs of the year is not an easy task, but Aquarius thrives in this role through their progressive and independent nature. Although people in this sign can be temperamental, they still shine through with their lack of prejudice and deep understanding of others. With that being said, we felt the best pansy pairing for the Aquarius gardener is the Matrix white variety. These luminous, white blooms are sure to stand out independently in your garden.


Pisces - Delta Premium Pure Light Blue

February 19 - March 20

As a water sign, Pisces can flow and work with many different groups of people. They tend to always choose selflessness and compassion, which helps them in their endeavor for long-lasting relationships. We feel that the Delta Premium Pure Light Blue pansy resonates best with Pisces' innate ability to please all kinds of people. You can’t go wrong with this gorgeous blue, especially if you have a similar accent color on the facade of your home or in your garden. 


Aries - Delta Blaze

March 21 - April 19

The turbulent and confident nature of Aries brings a feeling of strength and passion to the entire zodiac. Taking action and living life quickly is the way of Aries and we couldn’t see a more fit pansy partner than the Delta Blaze pansy. Not only does the Delta Blaze suit this signs’ element of fire, but it also exemplifies the intensity and power that Aries signs have innately. This pansy contains hues of firetruck red, burgundy, and marigold yellow.

Taurus - Matrix Yellow

April 20 - May 20

As one of the most practical and devoted of the zodiac signs, Taurus exemplifies need for a stable choice as well as an indulgent one. Although you can catch them in a stubborn position, Taurus is always looking to commit to the most pragmatic of options. Because of this stable nature, we feel that the Matrix Yellow pansy is the best choice for Taurus gardeners. Even though this sunny pansy seems relatively uninteresting, it is powerfully colorful in large groupings as an unequivocal standard for pansies everywhere. 


Gemini - Matrix Primrose

May 21 - June 20

As an air sign, Gemini has the ability to flit about to each person they meet. Making relationships with a wide variety of people is no strange feat for a Gemini, they are charming, quick-witted, and extremely sociable. Due to Gemini's ability to become well-acquainted with a wide variety of groups, we chose the Matrix Primrose variety as their staple pansy. This gorgeous pansy face contains not only a cream color, but a melting of soft yellows as well. This really emulates the indecisive nature of the Gemini as well as their ability to charm and awe others.  


Cancer - Delta Premium Cool Water Mix

June 21 - July 22

Even though cancer is one of the most emotionally intuitive signs, they can be difficult to deeply understand. Cancer’s prioritize care and the wellbeing of others over most anything else and this level of empathy can extend to anyone they meet. For Cancer, we chose a pansy that was deep and rich in color with a bit of airiness to accent the many facets of the cancer sign. With blooms of dark violet, ocean blue, and hazy white, it is hard to resist this extremely gorgeous variety. If you are looking for a captivating bloom that moves you, the Delta Premium Cool Water Mix is the pansy for you. 

Leo - Matrix Harvest Mix

July 23 - August 22

Leo’s do not only possess the ability to lead and gather others together, but they also hold onto those relationships with their kind and warm-hearted nature. Since collaborating with others comes so easily to Leo, we have chosen a mix of pansies to emulate the many facets of this sign. With the Matrix Harvest Mix, you are definitely not missing out on bold and confident color. This mix contains colors of deep violet, tangerine orange, and sunshine yellow that come together for a perfect combination of harvest colors. Much like Leo is able to collaborate, the Matrix Harvest Mix works in harmony together. 


Virgo - Coastal Sunrise Mix

August 23 - September 22

Nothing is left to chance when it comes to a Virgo’s way of life. Being one of the most analytical signs, Virgos always make sure that their t’s are crossed and their i’s are dotted. No stone is left unturned and no detail can be lost. Because of this exceptional attention to detail, we chose the Coastal Sunrise Mix pansies for the Virgo gardener. This mix contains a variety of colors that emulate hasy pinks, dusty yelows, and light blues with intense lines and punches of colors in the faces of the blooms. It’s almost as if you are experiencing your first sunrise all over again!


Libra - Matrix Raspberry Sundae Mix 

September 23 - October 22

Peace and fairness come naturally to Libra’s as well as intense relationships with their closest friends and loved ones. Obsessed with the balance of life, Libra’s are always looking for someone or something to even out their personal nature. The intense need for balance is exemplified in the Matrix Raspberry Sundae Mix pansy. This gorgeous pansy shows an even share of pristine white and dark raspberry-colored blooms, creating a perfect swirl of hues in this ice-cream-inspired mix. 

Scorpio - Colossus Ocean

October 23 - November 21

Passion and assertion lead Scorpio's through their lives. They will dive in fearlessly to any task they find themselves in as well as reach for the in-depth scoop on anything interesting to them. We chose the Colossus Ocean pansy to express the depths of Scorpio emotion. This intense bloom shows shades of dark violet and blue as deep as the ocean itself, making a perfect choice for the scorpio gardener.


Sagittarius - Matrix Yellow with Blotch

November 22 - December 21

The ever-moving Sagittarius is full of life and always optimistic. Their bright and sunny personality is infectious and intense at times. As an air sign, Sagittarius gardeners tend to live in their heads, dreaming of bigger things, which sometimes inhibit their ability to follow through on real-life actions. We feel that the Matrix Yellow with Blotch pansy exemplifies Sagittarius to a “t”. A bright yellow hue surrounds the exterior of these blooms with a dark burgundy blotch that dots the middle of each face. Those born under this sign are much like this pansy, with bright and sunny dispositions on the outside and intense emotions on the inside.


Capricorn - Matrix Beaconsfield 

December 22 - January 19

Capricorns are responsible, forthright, and extremely self-disciplined. Because of these traits, they also tend to be very independent and sometimes serious. We wanted to choose a pansy that shows the self-led lifestyle of the Capricorn, and the Matrix Beaconsfield fits the bill. This stunning pansy has dark violet to white ombré blooms that definitely stand out amongst the rest. These pansies look amazing in large plantings or by themselves in containers.
