We had plants like these when I was a child that we used to call chenille plant. Is this the same? I lived (and still live) in the Fort Pierce/Port St. Lucie area, zone 9, about halfway along the eastern coast of Florida.

onewish1, you beat me to it! I was just going to post that link! LOL It is possible that the same common name is used for different plants, but I associate the name "chenille plant" with the same plant posted above. They do look very similar. Love Lies Bleeding also looks somewhat similar to another plant plant commonly known as Kiss Me Over the Garden Gate:

That would have made a good Valentine's Day article, too!
