 Buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) is a deciduous shrub native to North America and part of the Rubiaceae family.

The buttonbush does well in full sun or partial shade in consistently wet soil. The plant can tolerate shallow standing water and flooding conditions including swamps and adjacent to ponds and streams. It can withstand sand, clay, limestone in the soil. Buttonbush bark can range in color from grayish-green to nearly black. The plant will grow up to 12 feet and can have a spread of 8 feet. Pruning, while not necessary, can happen in early spring. 

 Leaves emerge in late spring and are bright green. They are usually in pairs or threes on branches in an opposite or whorled pattern. The leaves are smooth, up to 4 inches in length and 2 inches wide. It is a low maintenance plant with a white flower, or more rarely, a pale pink flower that appears typically in June and is fragrant. The plant will bear flowers for several months. The flower has a tubular, pincushion type appearance and will mature into ball-shaped fruits that are brown. The fruits will last throughout the winter months. 

 Waterbirds will consume the seeds and wood ducks use the plant as nest protection.

The buttonbush attracts bees, hummingbirds, robins, and butterflies. It is a common nectar source across most of the continental United States.

 Other names for buttonbush include button-willow, common buttonbush, and honey-bells. Buttonbush is an ornamental plant that is an attractive addition to an ornamental or water garden. It can serve as a windbreak on a property with a long life.
