Description from Possibility Place:  A shrub of the marsh, swamp, or floodplain, this plant grows well in good garden soil. In swamps, Buttonbush will grow in standing water. The leaves are an eye-catching glossy green but generally lack great fall color. White flowers blooming in late July and early August bear a striking resemblance to Sputnik.
