A sheltered spot along the side of a garage makes a good location
for a butterfly garden. We've included many different kinds of
nectar and larval plants here as well as a drinking pool and a
flat path where the butterflies can sun themselves and gather
energy to fly.
The Butterfly Garden features butterfly bush, goldenrod, Joe-pye
weed, New England aster, dianthus, verbena and more great-looking
plants to attact delightful summertime visitors.
