About Craspedia

Billy Buttons

Craspedia is a genus of flowering plants in the daisy family commonly known as billy buttons and woolly heads. They are native to Australia and New Zealand where they grow in a variety of habitats from sea level to the Alps. The genus is found in every state of Australia except the Northern Territory. In New Zealand, Craspedia is found from East Cape on the North Island south to Stewart Island. It also occurs on Campbell Island and the Chatham Islands.

Rosette-Forming Herbs

Craspedias are rosette-forming herbs with compound capitula borne on erect, unbranched scapes. The capitula are hemispherical to spherical heads of tiny flowers. Most species are perennial; one species is recorded as an annual (craspedia haplorrhiza). The leaves have considerable variation in form, ranging in color from white to green, and are often covered in fine hairs.
