Comments: Buttonbush does tend to attract Deer, so keep that in mind when planting. This plant is not prone to diseases but can get Brown leaf Spot. Luckily, this typical fungal infection does not need treatment. Removing the infected leaves, cleaning around the plant to allow more sunshine and airflow will fix the problem!
Buttonbush is a deciduous shrub that is hardy and fast growing. Pretty resilient in all types of temperatures but does require wet/moist soil, not drought tolerant. Common Buttonbush will thrive in 6-8 hours of sunshine. Adding a slow-release fertilizer in spring will help summer flowering.
The flowers on buttonbush...dare I say are "cute as a button". These showy round white pincushions that usually bloom in June through September. This easy to grow plant helps make a garden pop, while adding nectar for bees and butterflies and fruit for birds... It's a win/win for everyone!
