Button Bush
           Button bush is a shrub that can grow up to 10 feet in height. The most notable feature of the Button Bush is the spherical formation of the flowers. The plant is poisonous, especially the leaves, but the bark and the roots may have been used by Native Americans to treat illnesses. The Button Bush grows well in areas saturated with water, and it can survive and even thrive with its roots partially covered by water. The wetlands of Louisiana are ideal for this type of plant, but it is not found only in Louisiana. The Button Bush lives in most of the Unites States and Mexico, and even as far North as Canada.
