Product Description

Introducing one of this year's must-have plants, the unique and totally captivating Button Bush!

Named for the shape of its flowers, this new hardy shrub will be a highlight in your garden and will be the source of much admiration! Its tiny tube-shaped blooms are gathered into globe-shaped clusters with protruding yellow tipped stamens giving an ethereal starburst effect and the blooms are intensely fragrant attracting a host of friendly insects, including butterflies galore! 

The show doesn't stop with the flowers though... The glossy green leaves are a feature in their own right and turn a fabulous golden-orange in the autumn, plus new stems are blushed red - all adding much needed colour to your garden.

Even in winter, when the leaves have fallen, you get to see this stunning plant in yet another incarnation - the stems of mature plants form an attractive, twisted sculpture that cannot fail to impress.

Forming a naturally rounded shrub it loves a moist spot and would be at home planted by a pond but also makes a great container plant in a sunny position.

Stocks of this rare gem are truly limited, so early ordering is advised! Supplied fully established approx. 50cm tall in a 3 litre pot.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your cephalanthus 'Magical Moonlight' Button Bush:

  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

 

Aftercare advice for Button Bush:

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Water button bushes before the soil dries completely.
  • Feed once a year in spring with a balanced fertiliser such as our fish. blood and bone.

 

Pruning Advice for Cephalanthus 'Magical Moonlight':

  • Easy to keep, only occasional maintenance is needed, and plants can be cut back hard in spring as soon as buds begin to swell.
