    Wish I could see whole plant. I’m guessing this could be something in the Protea genus, possible a white form of king protea (Protea cynaroides) (?). Check out these included for more information. Click on image to enlarge. If this isn’t protea, make new post with photos of opened flower & the whole plant. Best wishes!
    The link below is for a cultivar named ‘Arctic Ice’

    Thanks much, Laura735. The Arctic Ice looks quite close to the photo I uploaded. Actually it’s from a friend, who asked to help ID the plant.
