The last month that you can plant lysimachia and expect a good harvest is probably October. You probably don't want to wait any later than that or else your lysimachia may not have a chance to fully mature. Starting your lysimachia indoors is a great way to get them started a few weeks earlier.

Keep in mind that our actual date of last frost is not always accurate because it is based on the USDA zone info for Zone 10a and it is different every year. Half of the time in Zone 10a there is a last frost after January 31 so always be ready to cover your lysimachia if we have a surprise late frost.
