Frozen Pansies

All my pansies are irrevocably frozen.  Not even a vacation to Hawaii could help them recover.  They served me well, and have been pleased.  I know that after their second year Pansies are considered annuals, but should I just cut them back and see if they peak up in the spring, or are they as good as gone?  

I felt like I was on a posting roll until I ran over and killed my landlord's dog a few days ago.  That kind of derailed my intentions as I sought solace in several books and a few warm baths.  That story is still to come...sigh.  

Merry Christmas!

Perhaps the pansies were frozen by the chill breath of Daisy's ghost...

Hi Red Clover,

Sorry you've been through not so good stuff. Put a smile on your face and sunshine in your heart. Everything will work out just fine.

Merry Christmas

Hi Red Clover, generally speaking Pmsies are considered to be a ten a penny plant and as with most things like that they probably do better as a young plant but if you've bonded with yours you could try and cut them back. The silver Cinerarias are treated as annuals but they will grow year on year if you let them.
