What is a Butterfly Garden?

A butterfly garden is a garden that is designed to attract butterflies. Butterfly gardens come in all shapes and sizes, from a single plant to an entire garden.  Whatever you decide to do, the most important thing to remember is to have fun doing it!

Did you know that monarch butterflies are poisonous? They won’t harm humans, but the chemicals from the milkweed plant that they eat when they are in the larvae stage builds up inside of them and gives them a poisonous defense against predators like frogs, birds, mice and lizards.
