A stand of Crossyne flava plants in bloom on a grassy field can be a memorable sight of numerous globose heads in festive distribution. Flowering happens in autumn.
When the scapes break off at the base, the ripe obovoid capsules, up to 16 mm long and 11 mm wide, carry their seeds away in flimsy, papery coverings on stiff stalks.
Bouncing about in tumbleweed fashion, the capsules will burst, releasing their fleshy, globose seeds, in colour green to brown or flushed maroon.
Whereto? Wherever the fortunes of wind and landscape contours dictate; the light, dry umbel laden with seed will tumble and roll (Duncan, et al, 2016; Le Roux, et al, 2005; iNaturalist).
