I am looking for either one of these. Would these come true from seed? I can swap seeds, cuttings or SASE, just let me know what you are looking for. Big Grin

I saved seed from my black velvet petunias last year. I'm not sure that they grow true. Planned on planting them to find out lol. I'll share if you'd like to try

Most hybrids don't come true from seeds. Also, some can be sterile. But it never hurts to try, and you might produce your own unique petunia. Smiling

If you do try those seeds (either you LadyLacey or Mistirose), I'd love to hear how they come out! I've saved seeds off hybrid petunias before and the daughter plants were very similar to the parent. I hope you'll share your results and post photos!
