Welcome to Cynthia's Butterfly Garden...a butterfly garden created at our home in Florida. This butterfly garden
runs along the 40 ft length of the south side our home, two trellises in the back yard 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 these butterflies such
as Pipevines (host plant for the Swallowtails), Milkweeds (host plant for the Monarchs) and Cassias (host plant for
Sulphurs) plus several of the various colorful nectar plants that these particular butterflies feed on such as Pentas
the Lantanas, Porterweeds, and more.
