Buttonbush

This wetland shrub, Cephalanthus occidentalis, is a very wide-ranging species, found all the way from Canada to Mexico and Cuba. The pin-like affairs sticking out all over are the styles and stigmas of the many individual flowers that make up the head. Buttonbush is essentially a temperate member of the coffee family that extends into tropical regions. Tropical members of the family such as wild coffee and firebush are common in south Florida.
