I should know all this, but yeh i dont.
I thought that A.Asterias was ment to have a yellow flower with a red throat, but my Asteria's are just a full yellow flower like Myriostigma, where as my SK has a red throat.
I see that my SK and another Asterias are still flowering, but the other ones flower has died, does this mean anything?

That's strange it should have a red throat. Possibly a hybrid.

The fact that the other flower died off may well mean that your flower was pollinated, here's hoping.

Nope, the flower is yellow completely, my SK is red like Trigs.

Hmm im not sure if it is, as the flowers are closed now. (it rained today)
But from what i can remember from it today(that makes me sound old)
its most like this one.
Does this mean i will not be able to cross them with my SK or Capricorne's?

Looking at Astrobase, in the compared flowers section, it seems myne is not pur yellow, as it has red tinges on the outside of the flower, unlike the pure yellow. Possibly there is a little bit of red in there, but its just not as prominent as my SK flower.

you certainly will be able to. it IS an asterias, the flower just doesn't want to show it. Wink
and btw almost all astros will hybridise, it is just EASIER to cross the red centre ones with each other and the completely yellow ones with each other as a very general rule.
