    Chenille plant or Wheat Celosia is actual name . Each "flower" contains many many seeds . They look like pepper flakes. They can be replanted or can reseed themselves. I love plants that multiply. Never know where they will come up

    I believe it is Chenile plant Acalypha-hispida Chenille plant, Red-hot cat's-tail Do you remember those silly little chenille crafts that you used to make back in the 1980's? Well this shrub recalls those fluffy pipe-stems that you used to make bunnies and critters back in the day. A bushy shrub with large leaves. The brightly colored pendulous tassels (up to 18" long) of Chenille plant are extremely showy and a specimen in full bloom is a spectacular sight. Red-hot cat's-tail. Click to Enlarge.
