Answer: I wonder if the plant in question is Love-Lies-Bleeding, also called Tassel Flower
(Amaranthus caudatus). This is an heirloom annual plant; Brilliant red seedheads dangle like dreadlocks from the tops of sturdy, 3-5' plants. They hold their color a long time, and are great in arrangements. Plant at the back of a bed with big tropicals like cannas, celosias, ornamental corn or castor bean. Amaranthus needs heat and a long season for best performance.
