Love Lies Bleeding

Unique and cool looking plant. I brought this to work today and it was admired by few people. I cut it out today because the temperature is getting colder and the weather forecast shows it'll snow this weekend. It actually snowed today for couple minutes but the snow quickly disappeared.
Anyway, I grew up seeing this kind of plant in my parents front yard.  The flowers (whatever you call that) can grow up to a foot long or more, it also comes with different shades of red. My mom picked this plant at the store early this summer and she asked me if we should bring the planters inside the house today but I said no, it's kinda too big to bring it in. I guess it will just have to die for the winter. The leaves are edible, so we might have them tomorrow for dinner :-)
