Butterfly Garden

Based on a Better Homes and Gardens butterfly garden plan, this is my first real flower garden. It is made up of mostly perennials – butterfly bush, butterfly weed, black-eyed susan, coneflowers, bee balm, goldenrod, stonecrop, aster, gayfeather, and elijah blue grass. A few annuals – sweet alyssum, parsley, and dwarf zinnias – are thrown in for fun (and color!). Some flat rocks give the butterflies a place to sun themselves, and a blue birdbath gives them water.

An outdoor organic garden located in Carol Stream, United States, cottagejen's Butterfly garden currently contains 13 plants.

This is a Butterfly garden that is known to be in USDA Hardiness Zone 5. It has mainly Combination soil and receives Full Sun light.
