Pinellia query

Howdy All,

Does Pinellia tripartita 'Atropurpurea' throw true from seed?  Or can it
only be vegetatively propagated?  I received some seed a little while back
and they're just germinating, so I thought I would ask.  If there is even a
chance it is well worth while (and with a given parent there will ALWAYS be
a chance), but I am wondering whether the atropurpurea is known to throw
true or not.

Thanks in anticipation.
