Flower Of The Week

13 Aug

This week’s flower is such a funny little one!
Billy Balls

The proper name for these flowers is Craspedia, but they are also known as billy balls, or globe yarrow. The blossoms form a tight round ball ranging from half to one and a half inches in diameter. The stem is very thin and leafless. Craspedia is always yellow and is a great accent flower in bouquets and arrangements. Many brides who are getting married in the fall choose to inclued billy balls as one of their wedding flowers! Craspedia means good health.
