Sorry Verdun, but I don't think what you saying is true, well not for me anyway. Those sown now will grow a lot, either way I've found them to be a lot better than the bare rooted ones that you were advocating.
One of the risk that I have found that sown too early in Spring means that you might have flowers the same year.
Looking forward to seeing the Fire king ones will be planted them in large groups, usually just collect my seeds from the mixed ones. They were one of the first plants I grew from seed when I started gardening, love them
