Is this the plant which is sometimes nicknamed Cleopatra┬┤s needle?

No, that is a plant with pitchers. This is called Red Hot Poker, although it comes in green/yellow/orange and red/yellow.

This was from a bag of mixed seeds. The others I have are more the usual colour.

That's so weird Wylie as I grew some from seed and they were all the usual yellow and orange but one of mine is yellow too, free seed with a mag if I remember rightly.
Yours is lovely......
