Cute as a Button!

This little button bush variety provides the same stellar features as the traditional shrub, but in a dwarf size. The glossy, green foliage appears in spring, each oval leaf with a reddish hue. The coloring of the leaves slowly merges into bronze, adopting a lovely burgundy for autumn.

A thrilling treat arrives in summer, when some of the most unusual blooms you will ever see come into flower. The flowers appear as balls covered in tiny, pristine-white blossoms, with protruding, white spokes (tipped in yellow), emanating from the spherical bloom. It's a one-of-a-kind sight to be sure!

Butterflies and bees will flock to your little balls of floral brilliance for their sweet scent, and birds will love the small, red balls that they transition to in late summer. When the excitement of your Sugar Shack has passed for the year, it will still provide some winter interest with its attractive branches and sometimes twisting stems.

Your Sugar Shack Button Bush is a deciduous shrub that has a compact nature and rounded habit. Plant your Sugar Shack near a water garden or use as a border in a moist spot (as these lovely shrubs prefer moist conditions). Sugar Shack can also manage some dry conditions, once established. It grows naturally beautiful, but is amenable to pruning if you so desire.

Button bushes always provide interesting definition to the landscape, and this dwarf variety makes it possible to bring some of their charm to your home without the need for a lot of space. With so little needed from you, but so much to gain, why not try a Sugar Shack Button Bush this year!

  • Colorful foliage
  • Fragrant summer flowers
