I have two clumps that grow bigger each year loaded with flowers. I swear one was red and the other blue (blau glocke) and now they are both blue. My nursery expert says she is doubtful so I bought a red one from her this year. Absolutely no doubt it is red. they are in sandy amended soil and get a fair amount of water where they are at the bottom of a hill I water regularly. Never tried seeds.

I would like to know more about sowing this plant. Is it true that it takes up to 18 months for the seeds to germinate?
