A neighbour donated some plugs (see pixs). One is cornflower the other is drumstick (caspedia globosa). Don't know which is which. Can anyone help?

    I had not heard of your Craspedia, so had to look it up and I love this description on the T&M site. And the flowers look nicer than the description.
    (The narrow leaves look right for the top one?)

    "The quirky, spherical flower heads of Craspedia globosa rise like mustard-yellow, ping-pong balls on upright silvery stems."

    Cornflowers have lighter more olive green leaves and are very slightly fuzzy.  Can’t see if that is the case from photos tho’.
