Cephalanthus 'Magical Moonlight' (Large Plant)


Hardy Shrub

Be among the first in the UK to grow the truly unique Button Bush. Neat, compact and highly ornamental yet bursting with wildlife appeal, so there's no need to compromise on looks when it comes catering for the local wildlife. Florets of white tubular flowers open to form perfect round spheres, covered in a multitude of yellow-tipped, pin-like stamens to give this deciduous shrub a celestial appearance through mid summer. You'll love the intensely rich nectar perfume, and so will the bees and butterflies. Birds get their reward in autumn when the golf ball-sized lychee-like fruits offer up an abundance of seeds. Cephalanthus 'Magical moonlight' thrives in most non-alkaline soils and even copes on difficult damp ground where soils are prone to seasonal water logging. Height: 1.5m (5'). Spread: 90cm (3').
