Plants in the Garden
The plants in the garden have been selected to provide a healthy and natural butterfly habitat. This habitat requires plenty of sunshine, a water source, protection from the wind, nectar plants in bloom from early spring to late fall and host plants to provide a place to lay eggs and provide food for hatched caterpillars. Organic gardening practices are utilized to protect the plants, butterflies, and the gardeners too!
You will find both perennial and annual species of plants growing in the garden. Their rainbow colors, varying shapes and sweet fragrances attract different butterflies who flit from flower to flower drawing up nectar with their long proboscis and pollinating plants as they float through the garden.
Stroll quietly or sit for a spell and observe the butterfly activity in the garden that varies from day to day. Butterfly gardens have a magic about them that can lift the spirit and cheer the soul even on a cloudy day!
