Observation - Plant - any suggestions which? - Southern Africa. Description: Sprawling plant 190-300mm. The sinuous branches swaying in the wind reminding me fancifully of Medusa’s snake locks. The stem is brown and woody at the base of the plant becoming whiter and sort of felty towards the top of the plant. Narrow green leaves

Sprawling plant 190-300mm. The sinuous branches swaying in the wind reminding me fancifully of Medusa’s snake locks. The stem is brown and woody at the base of the plant becoming whiter and sort of felty towards the top of the plant. Narrow green leaves white and sort of felty above. Bracts green but white and almost cobwebby at base. Very tiny white flowers – fading light brown with age. Quite strongly scented – the fragrance a pleasant mix of sweet and spicy. I don't recognize this plant at all. Any suggestions? The plants were growing in an area that had been burnt within the last year or so - don't know if that is of any significance.
