Is there anyway you can tell which stock seedlings will turn out single?

Planting a single bloom variety should yield mostly single flowers; the double bloom varieties always have a percentage of blossoms that come out single, but some varieties have a smaller percentage than others. There's some indication that the double-flowered seedlings are sturdier and lighter in color than then singles. Here are a couple of articles: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/flowers/stock/growing-stock-flowers.htm
