    Thanks for you help guys.

    There isn't a trace of red or pink in the flowers, so I don't think there is any rubra in there.

    there doesn't have to be. it's possible for a cross between red and yellow flowers to have yellow flowers, or red. although the odds are much more favorable to an orange. the chance increases much more if it's an F2 (which is why i added that to my guess).

    There is that, but alata is known sometimes to have some reddish tinge to the flower in the pure species, rubra cross aside. And sometimes in a cross, some flowers will show no trace of one of the parents, choosing to look like one parent plant or the other. Whether in flower color or form. ID'ing hybrids is tough, but fun trying to figure it out. So many variables!
