Billy Buttons Pictures

Billy Buttons are a flowering plant that is part of the Daisy family.  Their botanical name is Craspedia but most people refer to them as either Billy Buttons or Woollyheads because of their fluffy round shaped blooms.  They have long skinny stems which makes their big round blooms look even more unique.  Billy Buttons are often used in flower arrangements, decorations, crafts, and are popular for weddings.  They bloom during the Spring.

Here are some pictures of Billy Buttons flowers.
