stratification list

Does anyone know of a site that would give the names of the seed that need stratification?
I am trying to find information about Impatiens glandulifera Indian Balsam. I got some seed off ebay last year and they didn't germinate. Think it may have been because of lack of stratification.
Thanks if anyone would know of a good list.

RE: stratification list

Lots of info on germinating those seeds comes up on Google and per all the standard germination databases it requires cold stratification.

There are numerous seed germination databases available and most are linked in the discussions here about all of them. They all include the need for stratification or not in their info for each plant.

I linked 1 of the recent discussions below. Hope this answers your question.
