I think I'll wait for spring Lyn, I don't think they'll need the chill treatment.

That's Rehmannia elata though Lyn, no seed with this hybrid. 

The words 'Illumination Pink' come to mind

I've lost Rehmannia elata in the past, no PM was carried out so no definite cause of death.

I wouldn't trust them

I went to a GC this morning and might have seen this plant. Not pure Rehmannia elata but a hybrid between that and R. glutinosa

If you leave the seeds outside to stratify naturally you can't leave them too long. They germinate when they're ready. That way there are no problems with where to grow them on. They never need artificial heat, maybe a cold frame or cold GH after germination and in the worst of the first winter.
