Buttonbush is a deciduous shrub often found along sunny stream banks and moist bottomlands.  The tiny white flowers are arranged in a globe, shaped like a fluffy white disco ball, with dainty white pistils protruding out of each flower. The flowers are a good nectar source for bees and butterflies. The seeds are used as forage by waterfowl and shorebirds. It is the larval host plant for the Hydrangea sphinx, Darapsa versicolor, and Titan sphinx, Aellopos titan.
