Roy: I gathered these seeds from the wild and don't have actual experience germinating them.  The seedheads seem to keep their seeds through the winter and early spring, and then they must fall down into a fine tangle of old, rotted grass and leaves with a rather hard, alkaline, clay based soil underneath.  Then, germinating is up to them.   After the second to third week of June onwards, rain is scarce in Central Texas, but showers could happen.  The next "periodic" rain then comes around Sept. 15th.  
So if I were germinating the seeds, I would do so now and sow them in a container of media made with good potting mix, sharp sand, and a little sifted, alkaline clay-based soil, if you have any.  Cover lightly.  Press covering soil down.  Water from the bottom.  Keep the container under the light shade of a shrub till you see some results. Be sure to let us know what happens.  Possibly someone else will write in with their experiences. -Cynthia W. Mueller
