Photographed this interesting shrub about a week ago or so, it was exciting to identify it, I succeeded only today.
Any members who are familiar with it?
Before I give its name.

whether it is Gymnopserm ?

No this is Proteaceae

Very interesting, from cones any body will say it is gymno.

Let me try. I think this is Leucadendron galpinii commonly known as Galpin’s Leucadendron

You are a genius, no doubt my favourite,
I am proud of you.
The species is, however, L. salignum.
Common names: Common Sunshine Conebush, Geelbos, Red Cone Bush, Sunshine Protea
