The earliest that you can plant anagallis in Zone 3a is April. However, you really should wait until May if you don't want to take any chances.

The last month that you can plant anagallis and expect a good harvest is probably August. Any later than that and your anagallis may not have a chance to grow to maturity. If you are starting your anagallis indoors then you might be able to get away with starting them a little bit earlier.

Last Frost Date

On average the last frost is on May 15 in Zone 3a. It might get as low as -40°F during the coldest months of winter.

Always keep in mind that our actual date of last frost may not be accurate from year to year because it is based on the USDA zone info for Zone 3a and it is different every year. Since half of the time in Zone 3a it frosts late in the year after May 15 be ready to cover your anagallis if we have a surprise late frost.
