I have been growing Veltheimias for years.   And yes,  you will get some different shades.   Also,  I have about one out of every 30 seeds give a yellow flower.   When the yellows flower I isolate them together and self the yellows because the pollinators don't seem interested in yellow.   Joe,  Oceanside, CA
