Red and Yellow Hot Pokers

Last year I sowed a packet of red hot poker seeds. There was a reasonable germination rate and I planted out most of the matured seedlings by the middle of July. Only one plant managed to produce a flower before the enslaught of winter

This year the flowers have been much more plentiful and as well as the traditional red flowers I have also had flourescences which have been distinctly yellow. Clearly not all of the seeds shared the same parentage. The plants have been placed just in front of my fig plant. This, (the fig tree), as previous posts will disclose was purchased from Glenarm Castle some four or five years ago.
