NJBob, I'm not sure what you mean by "seed variety". Looking at all the different colors on the ATP data base, I'm thinking that if one was to plant the seeds from, for example, the bright yellow Cheyenne Spirit that I have, I may get some of the colors that I see here at ATP. Right???? Confused

It means that it can come true from seeds. Not like tissue culture plants that are clones of each other. If it cross pollinated with another Cheyenne Spirit - yes you should get a mix of colors.

Okay...Thanks for the information. I think I'll spread some seeds this fall to see what I get. Thank You! Thumbs up
