This attractive plant with grey foliage strikes stunning long stemmed golden globe flowers. It is long flowering from spring to summer and the flowers are great fresh in floral arrangements, or make good dried material.
Billy Buttons is a perennial but is treated as an annual in the colder areas. Plant in full sunlight. They naturally grow in rather swampy places, so need a moist but well drained soil to be at their best.
Very frost tolerant, and can take dry periods and coastal sites. Grows from an underground rhizome, so if the plant dies off, it can resprout.
