Feature bloom: Billy Balls

If you're not a florist, the title of this blog post might throw you off a little bit. But don't worry, billy balls are a real flower. They come from the same family as a daisy but they don't really look like a typical flower would.

Their scientific name is actually Craspedia and they can also be called billy buttons. They come in a beautiful, vibrant yellow colour and they are wonderful on their own or as an accent to other flowers. Great as an accent or even featured on their own, billy balls are popping up more and more lately. Here are some examples of some beautiful bouquets, boutonni√®res and other ways to use them.
