Tragopogon pratensis (Yellow goatsbeard) grows freely in the verges around where I live.  I have collected a few seedheads and would like to incorporate them into my wild flower garden. Any perticular growing instructions please?

I have also discovered a small patch of Purple goatsbeard (Tragopogon porrifolius) growing in some barren land near bye.  I have also collected a small quantity of seed heads ( less than 5%).  Are the planting requirements similar to the yellow variety?

Finally, if I were to plant both varieties in the same area would they cross polenate and lose their individual caractoristics.

Thank you, in anticipation of any advice.
