Butterfly Garden - Specialty Gardens

The Butterfly Garden is located on the south east side of the Historic Conservatory. It is home to hundreds of native butterflies which gather during the hot, calm days of summer. Many assorted plants in the garden provide the needed food for larval and adult butterflies.


Summer 2012

Local Master Gardeners are currently re-designing and planting the Butterfly Garden area to create a better habitat and accommodate the full life-cycle of native butterfly species. After completion, the KSU Gardens will be considered a butterfly Waystation. For more information on developing a Monarch Waystation, please visit http://www.monarchwatch.org/waystations/.
