Button Bush Live Stakes
Button Bush Live Stakes: Cephalanthus occidentals, or buttonbush, is a North American native deciduous shrub. It grows well in mixed sun and shade in the moderately warm USDA plant hardiness zones. They are graceful and lovely shrubs with irregular, gently twisted, multi-stemmed trunks.
In nature, they occur in consistently high-moisture soil or up to three feet of standing water. They are a common sight along partially shaded riverbanks, streams, swamps, or near small lakes.
They need at least six hours of daily sunshine to produce their lovely white pom-pom flowers. They are relatively undemanding shrubs if you meet their water and sunlight demands.
What Are Button Bush Live Stakes?
Live staking is a process that allows an arborist or horticulturist to create new plants from cuttings. The horticulturist will use a sterile, sharp blade to cut a small stem--or live stake--from a healthy specimen. They quickly transplant those cuttings by sticking them directly into the ground, usually in a high-moisture environment.
Once transplanted into that permanent location, they will develop roots and begin to grow. This process makes planting buttonbush plants very affordable when compared to purchasing seedlings.
Button Bush Live Stakes Will Grow Into Lovely Shrubs With White Pom-Pom Flowers
It can be hard to imagine when you look at the little button bush live stakes, but they will eventually grow into a lovely, almost twenty-foot-tall shrub.
The green whorled leaves will grow in an opposing arrangement on the red-brown stems. They will be dark green and oval-shaped with a softly rounded tip. The leaves will grow as large as six inches long and two inches wide.
The flowers will look like white pincushions--large, white, and pleasantly rounded. They will have petite, tubular-shaped petals and a wonderful fragrance. These lovely blossoms attract butterflies, bees, and birds.
