Craspedia globosa Billy Buttons is actually a native wild flower native to Australia that is actually in the daisy family.  This cute little flower has become enormously popular for its decorative spherical drumstick flower heads that dry fantastically well and hold their colour.  In warmer climates it can actually flower year round. Flowers traditionally through summer.

Plants like excellent drainage in a full sun position.  A minimum of six hours of sunlight is needed to ensure that the plants flower profusely.  A very popular choice for flower farmers.  It grows in all soils except for acidic soils other than that it is very simple to grow.  Once established unless the soil is very dry it is quite happy doing its own thing.  Whilst the plants do not really require fertilising, an application once at the beginning of the growing season with a slow release fertiliser will help with production for flower farmers.  Craspedia plants actually prefer a cool root run so mulching will help with this.  

Happy either in the garden, a window box or pots.  As mentioned previously it makes an excellent cut flower and looks great in both bouquets and in a vase.

To dry the flowers, simply cut the flowers, strip the leaves ensuring you keep the stems long enough to bunch together and hang up in a warm dry spot.
