Brighten someone's life with bubbly, bouncy Billy Buttons, an easily grown Australian native flower ball that looks great in the garden and will continue to please as a dried flower. Also featured in our Christmas series, but too beautiful not to enjoy all year round.
Beat the rhythm of life with nature's own golden drumstick. Also commonly known as 'Drumsticks' and previously named Craspedia, Billy Buttons have lovely silver grey foliage with bright yellow ball shaped flower heads on the end of long stems.
They are a perennial wildflower native to both Australia and New Zealand and are extremely popular in floristry and event styling. They also make a great dried flower!
Billy Buttons are happy growing in a sunny, well-drained position. You can sow them directly where they are to grow after all danger of frost has passed, or start them in seed raising trays then transplant the seedlings when they have 2 sets of leaves.
To sow, scatter seeds in a sunny position and cover with a thin layer of soil as they need some light for germination. Ensure that the soil stays moist. Germination may take up to 2 weeks.
Featuring the beautiful illustrations by Daniella Germain, this is the perfect gift for any occasion.
