Fiber Optics Buttonbush with white flowers

Discover more information on 

Fiber Optics® Buttonbush

Fiber Optics® Buttonbush is a distinct improvement over the coarser species that grow twice the size of this compact selection. Native from Florida to Mexico and north to Nova Scotia and Ontario, buttonbush is quite happy in moist conditions, tolerating flooding and wet spring soil. As such, it is often used in wetland restoration work along streams and pond banks. It's an ideal choice for low areas in the landscape that stay moist. Conversely, it grows well without excessive moisture. Fiber Optics® has exceptional wildlife benefits including nectar-filled flowers and a seedhead that is eaten by waterfowl.
