More Information

Description Unique, orb-shaped flowers make Sugar Shack® buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) look impossibly exotic. But in fact, buttonbush is native to North America and surprisingly easy to grow! Sugar Shack® is prized for its compact habit, at roughly half the native buttonbush's size, making it perfect for home gardens! In summer, sweetly scented spherical flowers decorate buttonbush's leafy habit, replaced by unique red seed pods for more color and interest in fall. Pollinators love its fragrant blooms!

Died despite proper planting & care

Both I purchased died not long after planting despite proper care. $450 order and only 6 are still alive. Won’t ever purchase quart sized plants again for my landscape.

Hello! We're sorry to hear that you had trouble with your new plants. We believe that quart sized plants are a great, cost-effective way to add plants to your garden. Especially since all of our plants are shipped with well established root systems.

Rest assured, we do have a 60-day guarantee on all of our plants! Please email pictures of the plants to claims@greatgardenplants.com, making sure to put your order number and name in the subject line so that we may provide the best assistance possible. If you received your plants within that timeframe, we will be happy to apply your warranty once we receive the pictures. Happy Gardening!

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.
