Cephalanthus occidentalis 'Sputnik'

Buttonbush

Plant Type:

DECIDUOUS SHRUBS

Cephalanthus occidentalis ‘Sputnik’ – A very nice selected Buttonbush with all flowering orbs looking like the famous Soviet Sputnik satellite. Flowers are sometimes infused with the barest touch of pink when developing, finally maturing white on a nicely formed shrub with somewhat glossy leaves. The foliage often picks up yellow tones in the autumn before dropping. This is a plant content in wet soils but adaptable to fertile soils that retain moisture between rains. Buttonbush is a terrific wildlife plant used by all manner of winged creatures, bees, water birds and butterflies alike. ‘Sputnik’ has been selected by Steve Bieberich in Oklahoma. Cutting grown.
