Chenille plant is an erect, sparsely branched shrub that can get 6-12' high with a spread of 3-6'; average mature dimensions are approximately 8 ft x 5 ft in the landscape. The evergreen leaves are oval with pointed tips. Chenille plant named after its remarkable flowers, which range in color from purplish red to crimson, clustered in drooping velvety catkins, 8-20" long and 1" in diameter. They are dense and fluffy, creating a wonderful textural experience, and will appear intermittently throughout the year long as the plant is well-watered.
Plant in full sun or light/partial shade; best flowering occurs in full sun. Chenille plant enjoys high humidity and needs regular watering during the heat of summer; less during the cooler winter months. It works best as a free-standing specimen shrub, in groupings of 3-5, or as an informal hedge of medium height.
