Do kniphonia self seed easily?

Two plants that I am assuming are kniphonia have appears in the garden. One is just developing the flower spike. 

Would they have potentially come from a neighbours?  One is right next to my young fairy Magnolia which is flowering for the first time and shadowing it. Can they be moved?  If they are red I'll likely give them away.

    They normally spread from their roots. Perhaps you could add a photo. If it is a Knipofia they can be removed. They are likely to be orange rather than red or possibly yellow

    I've seen them growing wild in Scotland so presumably they do.
    The whole truth is an instrument that can only be played by an expert.

    The garden is new with lots of soil delivered in.

    So we dug up the red hot poker only to be greeted by what looks like Foxtail Lily roots. I planted some when we first moved in 2. 5 years ago in another part of the garden and they never came up. 

    No idea how they moved but not sure they will like being dug up.
