Cephalanthus occidentalis, or Buttonbush is native to the eastern United States and Canada.  It is in the madder family, Rubiaceae. It normally grows in wetter habitats, where they occur as shrubs or small trees growing to 2.5–5m (7–15 ft) tall. The leaves are simple, arranged in opposite pairs or whorls of three. The flowers form a dense globular inflorescence.

Cephalanthus was named by Linnaeus in Species Plantarum in 1753. The generic name is derived from the Ancient Greek words κέφαλος (kephalos), meaning "head", and ἄνθος (anthos), meaning "flower."

Information

Prices listed are subject to change, based upon size change and availability.

We are a small local nursery with limited shipping capability. We will do our best to ship smaller material (usually 1 or 2 gallon), although we can sometimes ship larger plants with the pots removed.

We have some species that are not listed, as we have too few of them to make a full listing plausible. You can always inquire.

We will consider contract growing an order with appropriate advance notice and availability of seed, cuttings or lining out stock.
