Blooms Bring Butterflies …

The tropical milkweed in my garden are blooming! Have you ever looked up close at a milkweed flower? They’re rather pretty.

I’ve noticed an increase in butterfly activity in the garden since the milkweed blooms began. There aren’t too many things to me more relaxing than watching the butterflies flit from flower to flower.

R&G has tropical milkweed for sale in the Neighborhood Garden Boutique for only $4/1-gallon size. For more information on tropical milkweed and to order, go here: “Tropical Milkweed”.  They aren’t listed yet, but I can also get many varieties of our native milkweed. Just let me know what you’re looking for!

They’ll be here soon …

The butterflies and hummingbirds will be back in our area in droves soon. Is your garden up to the task of having enough nectar plants and host plants for them?

These gorgeous flowers are part of a client’s order for her new butterfly and hummingbird attracting garden. I’m telling ya, not long after I set these in the holding area in my backyard the butterflies started coming around. This is only a small part of the plants she’s getting next week. Will share pics of of all of them then. Click on each pic to see the name of the plant.
