Wrong scientific name

The scientific name is incorrect it ought to be Viola × wittrockiana, enter a revised identification with the above name to change it. Yes some pansies will flower through the winter if the weather is not to severe, there are selected strains that are sold as winter flowering varieties.
Junonia oenone is an African butterfly with the common name Blue Pansy.
