Welcome to butterflies gardens and raising butterflies...about how we created our own butterfly garden at our home
in Florida. This butterfly garden runs along the 40 ft length of the south side our home, with two trellises in the back
and a small square garden on the north side, all dedicated to the raising of Monarch, Pipevine Swallowtail and Sulphur
butterflies. The butterfly garden features a beautiful variety of necessary host plants and nectar plants popular with
those various butterflies such as Pipevines (host plant for the Swallowtails), Milkweeds (host plant for the Monarchs),
Cassias (host plant for Sulphurs), plus several of the various colorful nectar plants that these particular butterflies
feed on such as the Pentas, Lantanas, Porterweeds, and more.
