  1. Holy cow – you just keep coming up with more ‘wow’s’. We have a similar burgundy tendril; I don’t know the name and it’s not quite as ‘chenille-y” as these. I will try to get a photo when it’s out later this year.

  2. I have a ground cover plant, very invasive, that is shorter and plumper than this one, but same lovely texture. I call it Cat’s Tail, not sure of it’s real name, but think it is an acalypha too. Was this one a shrub?
