Wine colored tassels cascade from an exotic showy bushy plant. Dramatic in borders or as cut or dried flowers.
The dramatic, crimson tassels of love-lies-bleeding make it a unique plant, with a long history in colonial American and Victorian English gardens. Place up front as a focal point, or in the back of a border. Tassels can reach 18", last for many weeks, and are excellent for fresh or dried flower arrangements. Also called tassel flower.
