The Maitland Garden of Hope
The garden is a private 1.5 acre garden owned by Colleen O’Connell and David Cybulski. It has a delightful variety of theme gardens, including a wildflower garden, orchid walk, woodland garden, numerous perennial gardens (approximately 5,000 perennials) with native species, and a rhododendron and azalea garden. Our newest additions are a daylily garden, butterfly garden, culinary garden, touching garden, fragrance garden, and magnolia garden.

Our mission is to provide a garden habitat that will aid in the conservation and enjoyment of our native butterflies, birds and honeybees.

The butterfly garden includes various milkweeds that are host plants for larvae. Numerous native flowers provide nectar sources for the mature adult. In addition to the monarch, this garden attracts many other species of butterfly.

We have over 40 bird species regularly visiting our gardens. Having many native plant species that attract birds, plus numerous feeders and bird houses, we have many resident birds. Common visitors include the black-capped chickadee, northern cardinal, bluejay, goldfinch, wren, baltimore oriole, pileated woodpecker, nuthatch, grosbeak and an occasional barred owl.
