argemone-off subject

I live in South Texas and we have a variety of white argemone (prickly 
poppy), that grows wild in the countryside.  Occasionally, you'll find  a 
pocket of yellow, or purple flowered ones.  I have tried without success to 
germinate the seeds of these colored mutations.  Do the colored varieties 
produce sterile seed?  Or is there a seed treatment you could recommend?
  I've grown argemone mexicana from T& M without problem and it reseeds 
without any special treatment.
  Any suggestions?
