Thank you so much! I googled it now that I have a name and is incredibly pretty in the fall! I've asked my husband to get a couple cuttings to start one in the yard.
They are nice plants and yes the fall color is very pretty. Bees love them when they bloom. :)
I'm not sure that looks like a fothergilla leaf. What time of year was it in bloom?
It's a buttonbush, Cephalanthus occidentalis. Takes me right back to my swamp-stomping days in SWFlorida. Look for it on wildflower.org. A great native plant, supplies food for insects and wildlife. Lucky you!
Your right Paula! I looked at the blooms better and I am defiantly wrong. Sorry Sharon!
No problem, Nancy! Still looks like a beautiful plant and very excited about having it!
