Keep in mind that USDA zone info for Zone 2a is not always accurate and our actual date of last frost can change quite a bit from year to year. Half of the time in Zone 2a we get surprised by a frost after May 15 so just be sure to be ready to protect your browallia in the event of a surprise late frost.
