I have a pink Brugmansia plant that is blooming right now. Two of the flowers are spotted and I am curious to how breeding works. I have other pink brugmansias that are blooming right now as well, so I have pollen from other plants to use. My main question is if the genetic material in the pollen is from the whole plant, or flower specific. If I put pollen onto one of the spotted flowers, will those seeds have a higher chance of having spotted flowers or will it be the same as just putting it on one of the flowers that are not spotted (but from the same plant)? I tried to look this up, but I did not find anything on it. I am also curious as to the spotted flowers. I have never seen any Brugmansia with spotted flowers before, I am wondering if this is already a thing or not?
Thank you!

I think the spots are probably an aberration. I don't know much about brugmansias but I do know it won't matter which flowers you pollinate you'll still get the same genetic results.
