Pansy seeds

luv2gro(z3a AB)June 27, 2005

I have really nice pansies this year that I planted from seed last fall. They are just starting to open some seed pods. Can anyone tell me if the seed that comes from one pansy is going to be the same color as the mother plant? In other words, should I package them individually (as in Viola wittrockia Super Chalon Giants Yellow, Dk. Purple, Lt. Purple, etc) or should I just lump them all together as Viola wittrockia Super Chalon Giants? What do people prefer in a seed trade?

If they were open pollinated (OP) you should just lump them all together and mark them as OP. Also, if the parent flower was hybrid, the babies won't come true.
