This small shrub grows to 1.75 m to 2 m in height and width.

It loves wet soil and can grow in bogs and around ponds but will do well in a regular, not too dry garden. The lovely spherical flower clusters attract many bees and bloom in July and August. The fruit ripens in September and feeds many birds. The dark green foliage supports different moths species as host-plant. Buttonbush is considered very valuable for wildlife.
