Drumstick Flower (Craspedia Globosa) 150 seeds (#953)

Craspedia globosa, also known as Drumstick Flower or Billy Buttons, produces a golden-yellow display of spherical flowers that often reach the size of tennis balls.
Its most current scientific name is Pycnosorus globosus.
The silvery-gray foliage reaches about 60 cm tall and wide, and the flowers bloom almost all year long in warmer climates.
Cut drumstick flowers make excellent flower arrangements. Cut the stems to the desired height and keep the flowers in a vase with water and flower food. Blooms last up to 12 days. They're also ideal for drying.
Drumstick flowers are grown as perennials in plant hardiness zones 8-11, and as annuals elsewhere.
