Ptilotus is a genus of mostly perennial herbs or shrubs in the family Amaranthaceae. The species are all native to drier areas of mainland Australia, although one also occurs in Tasmania and another in Malesia on the islands of Flores and Timor. Common names for species in this genus include mulla mulla, pussy tails, lamb’s tails and long tails. The genus was first formally described by botanist Robert Brown in Prodromus Florae Novae Hollandiae in 1810.
Ptilotus is a large genus with over 100 species. (Wikipedia)

I found this one growing in the Wireless Hill Nature Reserve, Fremantle, Western Australia in spring.

Camera used: Pentax K30
