DG says, Honeysuckle Fuchsia Fushsia 'Koralle', doesn't come true from seed. If I plant seeds from mine, will they be a totally new variety?

Yes, if you want that same exact cultivar, you must grow it from a cutting. Just like if you plant apple seeds, you will not get the same fruit as the one you got the seeds from. You might not be able to tell much of a difference though if both parents of the seed are the same culitivar. Grow it and see!

Thank you for responding to my question. That was what I thought, though I wasn't sure.

I have yet to try to grow fuchsias from seed. It is something I hope to try my hand at this year. I have a few cultivars I'd like to see crossed. Good luck and let us know what happens!
