2' tall 100 days to flower Craspedia globosa

Equally unlikely and charming, we love Craspedia! She goes by many marvelous names, from drumstick flower to billy balls to sun ball. Craspedia is easy to grow, producing a bustling skyline of inch-wide golden blossoms on long 20+ inch silver stems perfect for both fresh and dry bouquets. With a 2′ silvery tuft of gorgeous foliage, 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.
