Answer: I'll bet you're looking for the Chenille plant, also called Red-hot Catstail. The common names come from the long drooping spikes that appear in late summer and autumn. The usual color is red, but there is also a white variety. Acalypha hispida is the botanical name of the plant, which can grow to 6' in height. Chenille plants thrive in warm, moist air, and bright light.
