I planted some Sweet William from seeds and love it! Do these plants reseed themselves but the plant dies (like a marigold) or does the plant survive and you just cut it back (like a daisy). Thanks so much!

They will reseed themselves, the foilage dies awat.You can prob gather the seed pods from them when the foilge dries.
I am planning to do a bed of Sweet William next season. I have collected seed from the few volunteers I currently have, and will get more from a buddy with an extensive garden of them.
My question: Given the different varieties of color and pattern, does each color yield seeds in that color, or do they express the entire range of colors? My worry is that the whites have yielded the most seed, yet are my least favorite. I have not seen a garden consisting of just one color.
