Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This unusual deciduous shrub is rarely seen in UK gardens. Commonly known as the button bush, Cephalanthus occidentalis bears creamy-white, rounded, button-like flowers from late summer to autumn, with powerful fragrance. The blooms are followed by spherical golden brown fruits that extend its season of interest well into winter. Both the blooms and the fruits are attractive to wildlife, making this a useful addition to wildlife areas. Height: 200cm (78”). Spread: 250cm (98”).

Grow Cephalanthus in fertile, humus rich, moist but well drained, non alkaline soil. Choose a position where it will benefit from full sun.
Feed and water Cephalanthus regularly until fully established. Prune Buttonbushes in early spring, cutting back stems to a permanent woody framework close to the base of the plant.
