Mittsy, how nice to see a Heavenly Blue, very pretty

Question for Karen!
1: a plant produces 98% of this type of flower.
2: 2% of flowers are unique of this kind of bloom.
When you cross the flower n 2 , you use the genetics of this flower or the genetics of the plant ?
And in what proportion?

Dany, the only thing I can claim is a respect for the possibilities of morning glories - not knowledge.

My guess would be to use the genetics of the flower -

So all I can say at this point is to "self" and tag No. 2. And then, hopefully, if a pod ripens, to cross those seeds with each other to maximize the re-appearance of this pattern. I would try to grow out the vines of the F2 generation to their maximum length, which would maximize the number of seeds you could harvest. The more seeds from F2, the greater the possibility this pattern might occur in F3.

I can only talk in terms of what seems most likely from my limited knowledge base - not in exact percentages.

Like you, I would welcome any other ideas from others who are either more knowledgeable than I - or more serendipitous.

(To newbies reading this, selfing means pollinating the flower of interest with itself; that is, swish the pollen (that is on the anthers) of No. 2 onto the its stigma (see diagram here: http://www.cs.umb.edu/~whaber/Monte/Plant/Conv/conv-part.html ) There are a couple of entries for Tagging under POLLINATION in in this forum's index in the sticky)

That is a gorgeous flower - hope it comes back for you :)

Perhaps to cross with n 5 !

Dany,

Very interesting 4 o'clocks. Are they producing seed? I have a few seeds og M. longiflora if you are interested. (http://www.fireflyforest.com/flowers/1642/mirabilis-longiflora-sweet-four-oclock/)

A very double mutation!

Dany, is the double mutation forming any seed? Looks like a petunia...

szarvas, Hungary

Beautiful small bloom ... but to produce seeds !
Impossible because there is neither stamens nor pistil. "nobody is expected to do the impossible" .

This cultivar is probably an ancestor of Fuji no Monet .... it has no stamens and Youjiro leaves .... ideal for breeding!

With each flower I made a cross with one of the 500 cultivars present in the garden this year ..... imagine the number of F1 seeds that I will have!
Next year I can only cultivate crosses from this plant!
