Will begonias grown from seeds be of the same colour as the parent plant?

    Hi, in spring I bought a tray of begonias from B&Q and they gave beautiful salmon colour flowers for the whole summer. I had them in pots on my window sill. I managed to collect several of their seeds recently, and I'm keeping them to plant early next year.

    My question is, is there any guarantee that these seeds will grow to have the same colour as the parent plant?

    Thank you.

    Seeds collected from hybrid begonias might not come true from seed and may differ from the parent plant.

      Can we have a close up?:smile:
      Dont look like a begonia to me, but might be wrong, begonia seeds are like dust in my experience.
      I agree, probably not likely to produce flowers or even plants that are similar.
