Fiber Optics® Buttonbush is a more compact variety of this North American native shrub. Buttonbush is quite happy in moist conditions, tolerating flooding and wet spring soil. 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 seed head that is eaten by waterfowl.
