Butttonbush

Cephalanthus occidentalis
Attractive shrub from North America
The as yet unknown Cephalanthus 'Magical Moonlight', as this Buttonbush is officially called, is a compact version of the ordinary buttonbush. The scented white flowers stand out because of their perfect round shape. Great for a butterfly garden, because butterflies love it!

The Buttonbush is native to North America and flowers from June to August. In winter, the shrub loses its leaves. The Buttonbush is well-suited to urban gardens, rock gardens, or in a pot on your patio or balcony.

What do I need?
  •   A trowel
  •   Garden peat, compost, hydrograins and sand
  •   Water

Water first
Place the Buttonbush in a bucket of lukewarm water first.

In a pot
Add sand, garden peat, hydrograins and compost to a large pot and then plant the Buttonbush. Place the shrub at the correct height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Water the Buttonbush right away.

In the garden
The strong Buttonbush thrives in wind-protected, sunny locations. The deciduous yet winter hardy shrub can withstand damp soil. Through a clay soil, mix a lot of potting soil. Create a spacious hole for planting and till the soil well. Add sand, garden peat, hydrograins and compost to the hole and then plant the buttonbush. Place the shrub at the correct height, so that the top of the root ball is just below ground level. Fill the hole up with potting soil and press firmly. Give the Buttonbush water right away.

Maintenance

To promote a repeat-flowering, cut away any dead flowers from the buttonbush. In summer, regularly add plant food to the water in the water for an extra rich bloom. Do not let the root ball dry out the soil should be fairly moist. Cephalanthus is a hardy deciduous shrub.

Pruning

Pruning is not necessary. In March, the buttonbush may be pruned into modelled shapes. A wild shrub can be pruned back very well.
If you prune the Buttonbush back drastically, it will take a year for the shrub to recover, but it will return strongly after that. After flowering, you can prune your shrub any way you want.
