Cephalanthus occidentalis
Cephalanthus occidentalis
Common Name: Buttonbush
Hundreds of ball-shaped, creamy white flowers dangle from the bush in August. Butterflies and insects find the nectar irresistable. The nutlike seeds are eaten by many waterfowl and many types of birds use it as a nesting site. Found in low, wet woods, swamps and along streams and ponds, the Buttonbush is an excellent selection for rain gardens or water garden landscapes.
