    This plant is bugging me. It looks a little like Calocephalus brownii (but isn't). Anyone know?

    Thanks.

    I'd like to know what this interesting plant is too. Perhaps more information and more photos, closer up and farther away, would help. For example.
    • Is it an indoor plant?
    • Is it succulent?
    • Does it ooze sap when broken?
    • Does it have a smell?
    • What do the flowers look like?

    It looks like a sunlight starved Helichrysum/Ozothamnus coralloides.

    I stumbled across an illustration in Hortus of spikes of male flowers of Phoradendron serotinum (under Loranthraceae) and was struck by the similarity. Just a thought.
