  • The long stems make it easy to use in any floral arrangement and they complement most flowers. Cut the stems at an angle, removing about one inch.
  • Billy balls look modern and chic when paired with succulents.
  • Place the flowers in water with flower food.This will help open the tiny little florets on the round flower head.
  • They look especially attractive paired white flowers like daisies and roses.
  • Go monochromatic by arranging with other yellow flowers like tulips and sunflowers or grouping them together.
  • Billy balls are naturally yellow, but can be dyed other colours to suit your design needs.
  • Yellow Billy Balls are the most abundant, and they dry particularly well for use in permanent flower arrangements.
