Description

Button Bush has one of the most unique flowers of any shrub. The pale, pinkish-white sphere-shaped flowers bloom in mid-summer with an intensely sweet fragrance and are a magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds. Later in summer, the flowerheads mature into golfball-sized round fruits, each containing enough nut-like seeds for waterfoul and other birds to feast upon. This selection adapts to many soils except dry ones and is great for planting around ponds and in naturalized, wet areas. Thrives in bogs and wet environments.
