Mitochondria, chloroplasts and other "plasts" which have yellow, red and even
white pigments have their own DNA.  They are not derived from the nuclear
DNA.  Since the sperm (pollen) is so small, only the egg can carry these
organelles and so it is a good idea to use the plants with these colors as
the seed parent.
