Buttonbush is a somewhat coarse, deciduous shrub with an open-rounded habit. It is common in wet open areas, low woods, thickets, swamps, and stream/pond margins. Tiny, tubular, fragrant white flowers appear in dense, spherical, long-stalked flower heads. Long, projecting styles give the flower heads a distinctively pincushion-like appearance. Flower heads are very attractive to hummingbirds, butterflies, and other insect pollinators. Flower heads mature into hard spherical ball-like fruits consisting of multiple tiny two-seeded nutlets. Fruiting heads usually persist throughout the winter. Button bush serves as a host plant for some of our largest and showiest moths including the titan sphinx, the hydrangea sphinx and the royal walnut moth.
