Craspedia Globosa

“Craspedia Globosa”, more commonly referred to as Billy Buttons or Billy Balls, are striking globe flowers. They grow to approximately 1.5 inches and are composed of tiny yellow florets. Craspedia are perennial herbs native to Australia, New Zealand, and Tasmania.

This picture reminds me of my Grandma’s garden. She loved her flowers!

The different species can be found growing in a variety of habitats (from sea level to mountainous ranges) and climates, including grasslands, forests, and semi-desert areas.

Other humorous nicknames for Craspedia include “Woolyheads” and “Drumsticks”.  It’s a spunky & happy flower and one of my favorites for sure! Here’s a little Craspedia inspiration for you.
