The Q&A Archives: Plant name?

Question: I bought a hanging plant at Costco and it had no tag to identify it. It is small green leaves and has a red long bloom that looks like a red chili pepper but is furry in appearance.
What plant could this be?

Answer: I think this is a chenille plant,Acalypha hispida. It will do well in morning sun or bright light, it likes humidity, evenly moist soil and high temperatures so it should do well for you this summer.
