Cyndi,
I'm sure you can google as well as, or better than, I can, but below are
a 
couple of items I found.  I also found that the common name is Pink
Mulla 
Mulla aka Pink Pussy Tails.  The pics I see are lovely.  I see seed 
available from many sources, but no plants.  Perhaps you could grow them
and 
then sell me one.

 The species are 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 and Lambs Tails. It is a perennial in zones 9-10. In cooler zones
it 
can be grown as an annual or a container plant. It also makes an
excellent 
house plant in a sunny window. It grows 12-15 inches tall and 12 inches 
wide. The neon-pink flowers are over 4 inches long. This unusual plant
is 
very easy to grow, but do not overwater. It should go dry before giving
it a 
thorough watering. It prefers full sun.
