Sunrise Serenade from saved seeds???

Posted by kwyet1 z6 CT ( on

I received Sunrise Serenade MG seeds from 2 different trades this past spring. I have pretty single pink MGs in flower, but no Sunrise Serenade (I did not have any pink MG seed). Does anyone know if it is possible to get SS from saved seed or does the plant revert back??

RE: Sunrise Serenade from saved seeds???

Serenade self sows in my garden and it has not changed in the 4 years I've had it. It is at least 60 feet from any other MG's which reduces the likelihood of cross pollination and MAY be why it is stable for me.
Did you happen to get the seeds from me? Mine are as they should be this year but I think there may be some environmental factors that influence form in the hige types, but I am far from an expert. This is just my experience in my garden.

Linda it is possible for them to revert back but you should be seeing hige like flowers too, not all singles.

My SS has been reseeding true for several years. I occasionally get a bloom that's not split but it's rare.
