Welcome!

Do you have a closer photo? It could be a couple things.

Hi weedkill3, Welcome!

I agree with Daisyl, a closer photo of bloom and leaves will help with identity. My first thought is the blooms remind me of a Saucer Magnolia but I really don't think that's it. I can't see leaves clearly as to shape or size so closer photos will definitely help.

Tofi, it sure does look like Leucadendron!

One in our database for comparison of leaves, growth habit and bloom shape: Common Sunshine Conebush (Leucadendron salignum 'Safari Sunshine')

@weedkill3, that doesn't mean you should not take more photos. Two negatives make a possitive so more photos please. Smiling

My first thought was also a Leucadendron. I saw a few when I lived in San Jose.
