    Until you get close, this shrub almost looks like a Cupressus species. New terminal inflorescences looks like grass. The tiny flowers on the terminal inflorescence are not open yet, but will be out of the country before I'm able to return to this spot. The young stems are square. I've done several searches with various terminology, but no luck. Any thoughts appreciated.

    Not anything I'm familiar with, unfortunately.

    Knowing the location could be a help for others.

    Thank you, Michael - along the Capital City Trail as it goes through Royal Park, Melbourne, Australia - it's an area planted with natives.

    Cassinia arcuata I believe.

    Thanks for letting us know. I'm very pleased that I thought it might be Asteraceae.
