Here in Bloomington/Normal, annuals are generally planted in the ground or in containers during the month of May. As a rule of thumb, Mother's Day weekend is the beginning of the annual season. Most annuals when properly planted and maintained will continue to bloom until mid October or the first killing frost. Annuals are an excellent addition to any planting border, container, or a location where a mass of color is preferred.
