Just a little bit bonkers. It has 1972 written all over it…Craspedia will be all the rage on the season of 2021…oh yes indeedy. These bright yellow spheres on long straight stems are native to Australia but grow remarkably well in the UK…I treat them as half hardy annuals but they will over winter in a sheltered spot down south.
You are unlikely to get a big crop of blooms in the UK…but they are fun to grow…but if you are a flower farmer they won’t make you rich.
In Australia Craspedia is known as ‘Billy Balls’…which is of course very silly.
