Acalypha pendula is sometimes called, “Red hot cat tails”, “Firetail”, or “Chenille plant”. The medium green oval leaves are spaced along the trailing stems. The flowers line up along the drooping inflorescence to give the look of a red fox tail. A hanging basket of this plant is a real crowd stopper. The trailing stems will fill a hanging planter in no time.
