Buttonbush is a very adaptive native plant in most parts of the U.S. It's not just a pretty native, it also offers numerous environmental benefits. In late spring, hundreds of tiny tubular flowers are packed into showy flower heads. Butterflies and other insects find the intensely sweetly fragrant flowers irresistible. Later in summer, the flower heads mature into golf ball sized, round fruits, each containing enough nut-like seeds for waterfowl and other birds to feast upon. This new selection adapts to many soils except dry ones and is great for planting around ponds and in naturalized, wet areas. It thrives in bogs and wet environments.
