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 Sow-n-Sow's Christmas series, but too beautiful not to enjoy all year round.
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.
This 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. Cover seeds with only a light layer of soil as they need some light for germination and keep the soil moist.
Germination may take up to 2 weeks. Once well established in your garden, Billy Buttons will keep coming up for years.
Featuring the beautiful illustrations by Daniella Germain, this is the perfect gift for any occasion.
