Stumbled upon this in our nature preserve

LauraKaiserJuly 27, 2014

Watching my little one wade in a fresh water Creek I found these blossoms at the base of a Bush like plant, which was at the waters edge, rooted in the very wet, sandy soil. Had I not been kneeling down I wouldn't have seen them! What is it!? So pretty....

This is Button Bush, Cephalanthus occidentalis. Love it, and so do the bees, birds, and butterflies.

Native plant that naturally grows on the edges (or even in) wet areas.
