I think there is a type of lambs ears that doesn't flower a lot, some people prefer this type as they they take the flowers off anyway. I find if you take the flowers off the plant stays a nicer shape.

I think you might be too late for this year, and no you dont need to soak the seeds they should germinate readily enough.

The last one is Centaur Alba, you do see it growing wild but you can sometimes buy it in garden centres. It grows in crevices of walls or anywhere hot and sunny.
