Acalypha 'Chenille Plant'
The foliage of the chenille plant is unremarkable - but those fuzzy red blooms, named for the French word for caterpillar, chenille, are the delight of ornamental gardeners everywhere. Adding great texture, color, and interest to hanging baskets, containers and bouquets, the chenille plant is easy to care for. For the best blooms, plant in a spot with lots of sun.
