I agree Can't remember the name for the life of me, though. I'll try the database.

Here we go, there are several cultivars of Amaranthus known as "Summer Poinsettia" and this one looks a lot like the one in your pictures.

LOL, sometimes I'm not so fast at searches because I get carried away reading and then searching for more pictures and then making note of "Oh, I want that one!" There have been times when I never even get back to the original thread I was going to post on. Rolling on the floor laughing Rolling on the floor laughing
