Why Billy Balls?
Billy Balls, a.k.a. Craspedia, are velvety, ornamental flowers that add an element of fun and a pop of color to fresh floral or dried arrangements and small scale designs like boutonnieres. These small, finely textured, globe-shaped flowers on long, defoliated stems are durable, long lasting and a good flower for drying.

Tips from our floral experts
Billy Balls will shed pollen as they age so take preventative care to avoid their staining of any material. Cut stems and hydrate flowers in water with a low sugar solution and place in a cooler.
