Sugar Shack® Buttonbush

Buttonbush is an excellent native plant for wet, even boggy, sites. The distinctive fragrant flowers support pollinator populations. This variety was selected for its compact habit: it is about half the size of typical buttonbush. It also has showy red fruit rather than the typical green fruit.
