Well I unintentionally started this thread so let me tell you what I found out. This is indeed, a buttonbush (Cephalanthus occidentalis) although I didn't see a variegated one mentioned anywhere, Linda. Christian, it is only suppose to reach a height of 10-15 feet, sometimes 20 feet and grows in or near water. All these things fit the description of mine. I don't know if it carries a frangrance but the bees certainly love it.

How ironic.  Just this evening I paused to admire similar leaves.  Mine 
are on a tree near the new bed I was digging.  I didn't notice seed 
pods, but I'm sure it was the same type of tree.  Mine is quite 
tall...easily 30 feet.

Is this what passes for 'stopping to smell the roses' for us irisarians?
