Hi All
You may remember Brett from Geelong who sent me some pictures late last year of wild flowers from his farm. He has now just sent me these unusual pictures of "White Cones"

Does anyone out there have any answers for Brett.


Cheers to All



Stephen

I think it could be the highly reverred Himalyan Cedar or "Cedrus Deodara". The clumping of the needles into rosettes is more like the deodar rather the the needles evenly spaced along the branch as in the photo provided.
