Named for its sweetly-scented flowers resembling white gumballs, 'Sugar Shack' buttonbush is an exciting dwarf variety of the native buttonbush.  Reaching a mature size of 3-4 feet tall and wide, it's a wonderful addition to even a small garden, and lends three season interest.  Foliage turns red in the fall, and flowers form red fruit.  Deciduous.
