Butterfly gardening is easy. Whether you plant your garden as a butterfly lover, or as a connoisseur of flowering plants, forever after you will be both. By planting a garden of specific butterfly attracting plants, you will be rewarded with an attractive, colorful landscape, and an abundance of nectar seeking butterflies. Along with larval and nectar butterfly plants we offer: live butterflies, live ladybugs, Nature Garden Products, Praying Mantis eggs, and Venus fly traps.
