@Char Thanks again for your colourful Banner for Nov. 16, 2016 of the Salpiglossis blossoms. Those colour patterns are unreal!
And thanks to @Calif_Sue for linking me to the Salpiglossis section of the Database. It was thrilling to see more of these amazing plants.

You're welcome.
I did save seeds from the plant I had..have no idea if they breed true from seed or not and even though I save and sprout a few thousand daylily seeds each year, saving seed and getting them to sprout from a different plant is new to me. Once I see if the salpiglossis seeds will sprout, end of March/early April, I can send you some if you'd like. The seeds are really tiny and I have more than enough for what I will need.

Just did a search and found info for sprouting - takes 2 - 3 weeks, they germinate in darkness and can be started indoors 10 -12 weeks before last frost/planting outdoors.

Just came across this Thread again, @Char and I would be interested in some of those seeds when you find if they are viable. And thanks for the sprouting info.
