Are the filiformis seeds from the seed bank require stratification?

Need to know the type of Filiformis if it flowers in spring no if it flowers in fall yes

the one just listed as "filiformis" not sure, i am going to guess it is filiformis - filiformis and that needs stratification

From what I understand, stratification can be done without ill effects on the types that don't require it, correct? So if not sure you can just go ahead and do it just in case? I did that on some recently, hasn't been long enough to know the results just yet though.
