The quirky, spherical flower heads of this striking Craspedia rise like mustard-yellow ping-pong balls on upright silvery stems, adding structure and bright pops of colour to sunny borders and rockeries. Why not try growing some in a mixed patio container. They also make superb cut flowers for fresh or dried flower arrangements.
