This regular, blue-flowered plant grew as an interloper from a lot of seeds we received as 'Red Fox'. We didn't mind - this much larger plant serves a different, but useful purpose in our garden as well.

Several years later, another attempt to grow 'Red Fox' from seed (this time collected from our own plants) yielded this offspring: blue-flowering, but as short as its pink mother. We grow it in our rock garden.
We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
Seed for this plant is included on my seed trade list

How to you suggest to start the seeds for this plant?
They should germinate relatively quickly at room temperature - no special treatment required.
