I found this low-growing plant at Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park north of Sydney. It is an Isopogon, part of the Protea family. The Isopogons are related to Grevilleas and Banksias. The plants are rigid in growth with handsome foliage and rounded flower heads terminating the branches. The common name, ‘drumsticks’, refers to the rounded fruits which can be found on the bushes at all times of the year.
