Asigning Materials problem

Particle flow is bending my mind into a pretzel!
I have two emitters. One with a certain shape size and an identicle one with a slightly larger shape size.
The smaller one has a material assigned to it with no problems. The bigger one, for some reason, is refusing to accept the material I'm trying to assign to it.
As you can see from the attachment, the particles should be blue because im assigning a blue material. But it's still keeping its original color instead. Why is that??

PS, Its not only in the viewport. It renders out like that aswell...

You are not assigning any materials in your flow. Please read the reference documentation about Material operators for Particle Flow (Material Static, Material Dynamic and Material Frequency).

Thanks,
Oleg B.
