Yes definitely, it is well worth regenerating both seeds & divisions
where possible, depending on what future flowers do, you may also have
more than one possibility, perhaps a true hose in hose could be
developed or double might continue & you can choose the best shapes
over time, I used to love doing this in the nurseries, we turned many
experiments into plants I see in gardens today..  I really hope its a
solid gene pool for you, if you get more than one flower eventually or
more clones eventually you could separate & cross pollenate with other
colours too.... I'll have a pale pink lemon thanks Ina.........

Something else to look at with twin flowers can be a slightly wider,
quite flattened flower stem, not tubular in shape...  I will send you
some pollen from my twin Habranthus  robustus  next time I see it in
flower.... Perhaps someone with more knowledge than us may know if
this pollen can produce anything different or will it just reproduce a
standard flower ???
