I used to live in South East Michigan in a property that was full of these plants. They grew in a low terrain which was a swampy area. The wood was really soft and the roots spread everywhere. I took this photo last weekend at the Naples Botanical Garden, in Florida, it was in a wet area. I brought the dry roots from Michigan, they are very decorative.

I agree, looks just like Buttonbush, a native in parts of the U.S.
