    That is way too cool!!!!

    I think that most would be surprised at the similarity of many seedlings to their parents.

    Some plants simply carry their genes much better than others.

    I am not a scientist or a botanist, so I can't explain it. Nor do I proclaim to understand it.

    Neat!!!!

    Vicki,

    Where you might see something truly different is in the blooms. For some reason that is where mutations show up more easily.

    Now then, if you save seeds from this generation, you may see some seedlings that revert back to one of more parent plants in the back ground. But these are cute as buttons! And you have grown them well! Congrats!

    I have yet been able to save any seed from my red or pink blooming ones and don't even try to get seeds from Palace Purple. Maybe one day I will have time and space to grow everything I'd like to try!
