Buttonbush 'Fiber Optics®' - 3 Gal.

$49.99

Cephalanthus occidentalis Fiber Optics® NEW

Fiber Optics is a distinct improvement over the coarser Cephalanthus occidentalis that grows twice the size of this compact selection. Native from Florida to Mexico and north to Nova Scotia and Ontario, buttonbush is quite happy in moist conditions, tolerating flooding and wet spring soil. As such it is often used in wetland restoration work, along streams and pond banks. It's also a great plant for low areas in the landscape that don't dry out until late in the season. Conversely, it grows well without excessive moisture in a trial block. With exceptional wildlife benefits, the seed is eaten by waterfowl and fragrant flowers are a source of nectar.

Seasonal Note: Many deciduous plants have started to go dormant for the season. You may experience yellow, spotted and dropping leaves. This is completely normal at this point in the season. Reach out if you have any questions!

Zone: 4 - 9

Mature Size: 5 - 6 ft High x 5 - 6 ft Wide
