Organic Sun Ball Craspedia


 
With unlikely charm, Craspedia is celebrated by both Dr. Seuss and Martha Stewart. Craspedia goes by many marvelous names, from drumstick flower to billy balls to sun ball. She's easy to grow, producing a bustling skyline of inch-wide golden blossoms on long 20+ inch silver stems perfect for cutting. Her understory of silver foliage is an ornamental tuft unto itself. Craspedia makes very few demands, thriving in poor soil and even in drought.

Organic Sun Ball Craspedia Unlikely and charming, we love that Craspedia is celebrated by both Dr. Seuss and Martha Stewart. She's easy to grow, producing a bustling skyline of inch-wide golden blossoms on long 20+ inch silver stems perfect for cutting. Her understory of silver foliage is an ornamental tuft unto itself. Craspedia makes very few demands, thriving in poor soil and even in drought. Indeed, she is native to Australia and perennial in Zones 9 through 12, though Craspedia is very easy to grow as an annual here in the Northeast.

Grow Like a Pro: Harvest at full bloom, when spheres are uniformly golden. For straight stems in dry arrangements, hang Craspedia upside down to dry two weeks before arranging.
