Hello,
I work in a floral shop where the designer recently received an unfamiliar plant as a substitute to use in arrangements. I haven't been able to find it in any of my gardening or plant books, but suspect it's because it is native to warmer zones, far from here. I think it may be some kind of cactus, stone crop, etc. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Welcome!

I am wondering if its a conifer, such as a cedar and those are the male flowers. When you pull or cut it apart, is it soft and vegetative or woody? Is there a scent?

Edited to add: And I found this in our database:
Mountain Cypress (Widdringtonia nodiflora)

greene found the same plant I did, but the photo on the site she linked is better. Brunia albiflora. But we don't show it under that name in our database. Oh, wait! I think it may be misspelled. We show a listing for Brunia albifora (missing the "l"). No photos or information, tho.

Brunia albifora is the correct spelling but it's now a synonym for Berzelia albiflora so I added that as the accepted name.
Would someone do the honors of filling in details? Green Grin!
