While the weather is tempting us all to plant wayyyy too early, there are many flowering plants that thrive in the cool weather. Pansies, violas, diascia, verbena and petunias are just some annuals that will take chilly temps. If you see a plant you are dying to buy, and you live in a place where frost might still be a possibility, look at the plant tag, or ask a sales person, how much cold the plant will tolerate.
If all else fails and cold weather is forecast, either bring your containers inside or cover them.
