Default Pickerelweed seeds

Has anybody grown these from seeds?
I collected seeds last year and left them in an envelope to dry. I sowed half of them this spring and 0% sprouted. I read they needed a cold period so I put the remaining seeds in wet sand and into the fridge for 1 month. This batch, so far, zero sprouted.

My pickerelweed is blooming now and I'll collect another batch of seeds. This time, They're going straight into the fridge.

Oh, I just read they can be fully submerged in water for better percentage of sprouting, and they don't need a cold/stratification period.

Interesting, I've never tried to grow these from seed, just divisions.
