Description

Button Bush Live Stakes - Cephalanthus occidentalis is a Loving Moisture Shrub

The Button Bush Live Stakes is known for its spiky, spherical blooms, green, glossy leaves, and striking fall color. This moisture-loving shrub grows large enough to act as a privacy fence, and they do well when planted in groups. The buttonbush attracts butterflies in the summer months, and its signature crimson red seed pods add a pop of color to landscapes in the winter. They are excellent for moist wet soils. It is a multi-stemmed shrub that will add to your garden no matter the season. Named for its small and unusually round white and pink flowers that bloom in the springtime, the Button Bush is an aromatic plant known to attract butterflies, bees, and hummingbirds, all of which give beauty and life to an outdoor space.

 Button Bush Live Stakes: Cephalanthus occidentalis is a Low Maintenance Pond or Water Garden Edging Option.

This shrub fares best in moist soil, and it can be planted in up to 3 feet of standing water. A Button Bush makes it an ideal plant to grow along the edges of ponds or even in more extensive water gardens, where it provides both food and shelter for all manner of aquatic guests, such as ducks, geese, or turtles. It may even attract a few deer to nibble on its beautiful green leaves serenely! This bush does not require much maintenance - it does best when left alone! No pruning is necessary to keep this plant in great shape, although it may be trimmed close to the ground if you feel it has become too large for the space where it lives. As long as the soil in which it is planted is never allowed to dry, the Button Bush should do well to be left alone and to be enjoyed only. Native to the southeastern states and eastern coast of the United States. 

Buttonbush is a native lowland bush with a wide range throughout much of Eastern North America. It usually grows to between three and nine feet in height. It has glossy leaves and dramatic and distinctive white globe-shaped flowers in midsummer. These will attract butterflies and hummingbirds. After the flowers are spent, it develops interesting, round, reddish to brownish seed heads that it retains even into the winter. Many species of songbirds are attracted to these seed heads. The leaves turn to shades of yellow and red in the fall. 

 

 Buttonbush can be planted in a variety of wet spots. It can work well in a rain garden by a downspout, with the soil amended to retain the moisture of the run-off. It can be planted on the sides of ponds, lakes, and streams. It can also be naturalized in ditches and other moist to wet, low-lying areas, where it will tolerate flooding. It can even grow and thrive in shallow levels of standing water. The shrub is helpful for soil retention and erosion control in low areas and moist banks. It is also helpful for attracting and providing habitat for wildlife in the setting of wilderness and wetland restoration or a wildflower garden. Buttonbush is hardy from zones 5 through 9.
