Full Description

‘Sugar Shack’ is a buttonbush that has something spectacular on display from spring through fall. From white sweet scented flowers covered with butterflies in the summer, to bright red fruits all the way to winter. Buttonbush is deciduous shrub with rounded habit that grows 6-12 feet. Fragrant white flowers appear as spherical flower heads in mid-summer. Flower heads are unique looking like pincushion and are very attractive to bees and butterflies. Flower heads mature into hard, red colored, spherical fruits and stay attractive from late summer throughout the winter. Native to North America Cephalanthus occidentalis is magnet for butterflies and hummingbirds and beneficial for pollinators. Plants will tolerate wet sites and excess moisture. Buttonbush is best used in native pollinator plant gardens and low shrub borders. Sugar Shack may also be grown in patio containers. Plants bloom on new wood so pruning is best done in early spring. US Plant Patent #26,543.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Especially for my pollinators I planted this plant when our Zone 5 weather was iffy, with alternating bouts of cold and warm. Its leaves got a little brown from the the weather, but I pruned them and now that the weather has improved the Button Bush has taken off like it's the third year I have had it rather than the first year
