Beautiful Flower, huh? It has nicknames like the Torch Lily and Red Hot Poker and even Papaya Popsickle. The Kniphofia has many other sub-species in varying colors and they are gorgeous to look at. They are native to Madagascar and tropical parts South Africa. As far as magickal properties go, I found only one website and I’m not sure it’s very reputable. I’ll list them anyways. I also found an article that is thick on scientific terminology that says they have found anti-malarial compounds in the flower, so the least we know is that it’s healing. With the coloration you could maybe use it also to represent South/Fire. I first found out about this flower in this Sundays Baltimore Sun (June 17th, 2012). Links are below.
List of Properties (according to I&E Organics): “For treatment of physical, emotional or mental abuse resulting in emotional withdrawal.”
Picture source (it has a lot of beautiful pictures of Colombian flowers but the website is for picking up and marrying Latin women including offering romance tours, matchmaking, and lodging. Just wanted to warn you before you checked out the section on Colombian Flowers): http://www.latin-wife.com/Colombian-Flowers-/Kniphofia.asp
