Cone bush, conebush, or cone-bush is a common name for various plants, usually dicotyledonous shrubs that bear their flowers and seeds in compact, cone-shaped inflorescences and infructescences. The plants that the name most frequently applies to are members of the Proteaceae, and in particular the Australian genus Isopogon[1] and the African genus Leucadendron.[2]
