Button Bush Live Stakes

Button Bush, Cephalanthus occidentals, appears on the shallower areas, edges of rivers, and even in border areas.

This plant is famous for its beautiful, attractive golf button-like fragrant flowers.

They are flowering plants from the family of Rubiaceae. These are the native plants to the United States. Buttonwillow and honey balls are their common names. The buttonwillow are beautiful, deciduous shrub plants that grow up to 5 - 12 feet at maturity and 4 - 8 feet wide.

These shrubs are beautiful, deciduous shrub plants that grow up to 5 - 12 feet at maturity and 4 - 8 feet wide.

They have a fibrous root system and multi-stemmed trunk. Trunks are often twisted and different in colors. In new branches, they are green and smooth with lenticels. It turns into brown or reddish-brown and corky lenticels. At old age, trunks and branches become gray.

The irregular growth of the trunks increases the beauty of this plant. Leaves are glossy green with ovate and elliptic shapes and grow up to 7 inches long and 4 inches wide. The leaves develop in late spring; during fall, the leaves turn into a soothing yellowish-brown color.

Button Bush Live Stakes have showy, white fragrant flowers that bloom in June

The inflorescence of the shrub consists of showy, fragrant, spherical, or button-shaped white flowers. These flowers consist of Golf ball-sized, one-and-a-half inched spheres containing many scented, creamy white tubular flowers.

They have showy, white fragrant flowers that bloom in June. The flower head matures into a ball like two seeded nutlets while the green head turns dark reddish-brown. It is exceptionally well at adapting to a wide variety of soils. They can grow in waterlogged areas like swamps, lakes, and river banks. They form a thick base that makes them tolerant to challenging circumstances like soil erosion and drought soil.

They can bear all pH levels, including acidic, neutral, and alkaline. It performs very well in moist to wet soils and wetlands. The growth rate of buttonbush live stakes is short, 12 inches per year.

The plant asks for minimal maintenance and care and will work efficiently with average watering. The plant nourishes in full sun to part shade. Pruning is not usually required, but early spring is the best suitable time for it if you want to do so.

This shrub's beautiful, white pincushion flowers attract butterflies and honey bees. They produce nectar for honey, and pollination occurs through bees. After fertilization, the plant produces hardball-shaped, reddish-brown nutlets that mature from August to November.

These plants are free from all types of diseases and also pest-free. 

It is best to buy these plants for ornamental purposes. You can plant them in any landscape design and home garden with an average spacing of 4 feet between the plants, and it will effortlessly embellish that place.

You can also use this to restore the wetlands and control soil erosion to make soil comfortable for other plants.
