Ball of Tiny Flowers---Buttonbush

A ball of tiny flowers make up this favorite of mine, the Buttonbush. This native shrub loves wetlands and feeds everything from deer to tiny hummingbirds and ducks.

And I'm not the only one who apparently loves this plant, long ago a specimen was carried from its native area in the eastern U.S. to the San Joaquin Valley in California. There its existence created a meeting place for Native Americans---around a ball of tiny flowers.
