  1. David Francis  This one is a mystery to me. Does the flower-head ("cone") belong to the same plant? Were there others. We may have to wait for a flower.

    • Andrew Brown  Yes all part of the same plant and there were a small group of these plants. When I saw the 'cones' they reminded me of Isopogons.

  2. David Francis  I'm beginning to think this is Epacris impressa. Leaves, stems match and I can see the start of red flower buds in the axils of the leaves. I don't know what the "cone" like structures are, unless they are on the tip of shoots in which case they could be shrivelled developing leaves.

    • Andrew Brown  Interesting thoughts David, I've not seen any heaths around here before? I have to go back for a good look.
