    Button bushes are a favorite subject for me. Lake Barkley in the Land Between the Lakes (KY) recreational area fishing is big tourist business. Button bushes live on the lake shore and in the Spring the Crappie fish deposit their eggs at their roots, bees and butterflies depend on their nectar and roots prevent shore erosion.  Lake residents often do not appreciate this bush and destroy them. I'm trying to boost the appreciation of this little known shrub.
