Certainly, Christian  --  Suppose you get one or more seedlings with beautiful flower form but poor branching.  Your choices are to toss it, keep it and wish it had better branching, or cross it with one you've saved that has good branching.  If you save enough well-branched seedlings, you'll have a selection from which you'll more likely be able to select one that will best fit with the branching-deficient beautiful flower.  --  Griff

So the question is... would you save any seedling "just" for the sake of the stalk/ branching?
