Acalypha Hispida, Cat tail 

  • Looking for something unique and eye-catching, then look no further than the chenille plant. With broad oval leaves, and drooping fuzzy red flowers, the chenille plant can can be grown as a bush, a small tree, or even a ground cover. Chenille which means caterpillar in French, is the perfect name to describe their fuzzy flowers that dangle so beautifully from their branches. It is also often called Cat Tail which is very fitting name as well.
