Healthy happy from the get-go

The foliage looks beautiful, and all three bushes are looking happy - two in very full sun and one in part shade. Very excited for blooms next year! Appreciate your native shrub selections so much. More please!

Plants in good shape

I ordered 3 of the Sugar Shack button bushes. The arrived safe and sound. They’ve put on about 6 inches of growth in the past month.

It hasn't grown one bit.

I ordered my buttonbush along with two summersweet plants. They all came packed well and in great shape. The two summersweets have had new growth and seem to really be doing well.Sadly, the button bush , while still healthy and green, has not shown any new growth; even after quite a few weeks in the ground.I am hoping it over-winters well and roars back in the spring.

Late frost damage

Seems to slowly be growing back but the late season frost we had in Ohio really damaged the new growth
