Buttonbush

Cephalanthus occidentalis

Low maintenance, year-round appeal. Upright, arching branches, glossy oval leaves. Pollinators will visit the fragrant white spherical 1-2” spring flowers. Blooms look like pincushions covered in pistils! Waterfowl enjoy reddish-brown fruit which persists through winter. Naturalize in wet soils, commonly used for erosion control.
