Cephalanthus occidentalis

If you’re looking for a pollinator magnet for a wet or moist area, this is the shrub! It’ll attract a wide variety of native bees, as well as butterflies. This is a very bushy shrub and would thrive well in rain gardens, butterfly gardens with moist soils or in areas that need erosion control. It produces fragrant, white flowers, with a starburt apperance. Pollinated flowers then become dry fruit, containing seeds. Seeds are sought after by migrating birds, particularly ducks.
