Ahh! we saw some of these in Crete too but we just called them 'upside down' trees! I'm afraid that's doesn't answer your question but they so remind me of happy holidays.

It's an Araucaria, I believe. Took me ages to Google that one!

Thanks Greenfingers, how did you manage to google it from only a picture?

It's araucaria heterophylla, the Norfolk Island pine (in the same family as the Monkey Puzzle). Unfortunately it is not hardy enough to grow in the UK

I was on Google for over an hour trying to find the answer - on Google you can search 'images' so I typed in 'trees', 'mediterranean trees', 'tree species' and loads of other searches to find it. Glad I (and Google, of course) could help.

Thanks Andrew and again to you Greenfingers.

It looks a bit like those fake trees that are really mobile phone masts!! I suppose if you want one that shape you could carefully prune a traditional Xmas tree and remove layers of branches.

This isn't a tree. It appears to be a bract from a cactus, which one I know not. The cactus is like an aloe but, as yet, I am unable to identify which one.
