Question about impatiens seeds...

Posted by gardenfanatic MO zone5 (My Page) on

I have pink, lavender, and burgundy Accent impatiens which are forming seed pods. Will the seeds run true to the plant they came off of, or could they have cross-pollinated with the different colors around them?

They may have crossed but, with those color ranges you will more than likely get about the same mix. Lavender I dont know though.

In most cases, the seeds do not come true to type. You may get a variety of colors, some of which may resemble the original. This is the best you can hope for.
