Florida Butterfly Garden

The type of plant you choose to include in your garden will significantly affect its ability to attract butterflies.

If you are interested in starting a Florida butterfly garden or attracting more butterflies to your existing garden, you will need plants that will provide nectar, water and shelter for every stage of a butterfly’s development. Learn about butterfly garden design and suitable flowers for this type of habitat.
