There’s nothing quite like the glow of yellow, reminiscent of the turning leaves, golden fields, and changing light. Craspedia, also referred to as billy balls or billy buttons, is a sure-fire way of adding a punch of yellow to any arrangement. Perfect for giving shape, visual interest, and texture to your bouquets, boutonnieres, centerpieces, and other flower arrangements.
In the daisy family, these sculptural, lollipop shaped blooms can often be found as dried flowers and their long sturdy stems enable them to be displayed solo for a beautiful and simple look (perfect for rustic centerpieces). They’ll easily add texture to bouquets and work wonderfully for boutonnieres.
Craspedia are available in natural yellow as well as an assortment of tinted colors. They pair well with white and tones of green, blue, red, and pink. They are typically available from early spring to fall and are fairly inexpensive to purchase.
