What is the progeny of an F1 that is open pollinated?
Hi. I'm a newbie to this forum. A few years ago I ordered some heuchera and some hosta seeds that were described as being the seeds from open pollinated F1 plants. There is one heuchera from this seeding that has wonderful vigor, blooms over a very long time, and is of good size. It starts blooming earlier than my other heuchs, and nearly all of the blossoms produced seeds. I'm guessing that it was most likely selfed.I am getting ready to sow these seeds. Is it correct to expect the babies to revert back to the parents of the original F1's? What are the progency of the original F1 babies called? And, what do I call their babies? I'm having trouble keeping track of what to label the plants. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Happy Holidays. Sam
