Million bells

My million bells have been making some seed (not huge amounts though). Is it worth saving these? I know million bells is a hybrid, are the seeds even viable, and what am I likely to get if I plant them?

I read somewhere on the plant propagation forum that million bells are from cuttings - if that helps?

RE: Million bells

we had a discussion recently on the winter sowing forum about million bells. A couple of us have tried them with mixed results. mine reverted to full size petunias, but another person had a couple of batches of collected seed and she did get some which turned out to be million bells. They're not blooming yet so shes not sure if the bloom color will be like the parent or not.

Save them and try them. The worst that can happen is that you may get a full size pot of petunias. :)
