Butterfly Garden

Monarch butterfly GardenMeadowwalk2]

Our registered Monarch Butterfly Waystation is a special feature of the Maitland Garden of Hope. A variety of milkweeds entice the mature Monarch butterfly to lay her eggs in this area. These plants will serve as hosts for the larvae. Nectar plants such as the Butterfly Bush have attracted many native species of butterfly such as the Eastern Yellow Tiger Swallowtail, Viceroy, Sulphurs, Red and White Admiral, Painted Lady and Blues and of course the regal Monarch. Early afternoon is an ideal time to view these beauties…….so bring your camera!
