Thanks for the lead Karen! I'd say it's Ptilotus exaltatus ‘Joey’ which seems to be the one everyone has.

I can't get this one to come up on the data base. I"ll try again and then add it.

It doesn't appear to be in the database yet Paul, it can be added though. Would you like to try?

Order and family can be found on wiki..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ptilotus_exaltatus

Order: Caryophyllales
Family: Amaranthaceae
Genus: Ptilotus
Species: exaltatus
Cultivar: Joey

If you copy and paste those into the correct fields you've done it!
