When can I plant Anagallis in Zone 11a

One of the first steps we take when we are estimating our gardening schedule is find our USDA Zone info. The zone info helps tell us things like average date of last frost and lowest expected temperature for our area.

The USDA zone info for Zone 11a should be reviewed to estimate when to plant anagallis.

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