Balloon Flower Seeds

When do I plant the "balloon flower" seeds that I gathered? I believe they are annuals but reseed themselves --so do I plant the seeds in the fall just as if they had fallen there?

Balloon flower, as I know it, is a perennial but often common names like this will vary around the country. You can leave some seeds on the ground and save the rest for spring planting. That way, you'll cover yourself if one or the other set doesn't germinate. Outdoors sowing success will depend entirely on the winter you have.
