A stem from my Tuscany has produced lavender pink blooms, about the same colour as Therese Bugnet. Would there be any difference from the perspective of breeding, since sporting is not a genetic change?
Lydia, is that where those ‘Pink Tuscany’ seeds you sent came from?
I’d like to know the answer to your question also.
I don’t think there is a clear cut answer here. Color sports sometimes affect progeny but often don’t. The answer would depend on the genetic nature of the mutation.
