FLOWER OF THE WEEK - CAT TAIL

Scientific name : Acalypha pendula
Family: Euphorbiaceae
This is my favorite hanging pot plant right now.
This plant called cat tail cause the flower look like a cat tail.
Fire tail, chenille or summer love are other name of this plant.
This evergreen plant is so exotic for hanging plant or indoor plant.  It's like full sun or part sun.
Well drained and moist soil is the best for it's growth.
Propagation is by cutting and low in maintenance. 
It's also beautiful grown in beds as ground cover.
Really coloring my balcony...
