We are a licensed nursery and have developed the Butterfly Gardens to Go collection specializing in plants for butterfly gardens and Monarch Waystations. Our diverse product line was designed to help create habitat which promotes the life cycle of butterflies ensuring that future generations will prosper.  Each plant has been carefully chosen to support the most common North American butterflies through each stage of development. We grow a wide variety of milkweed, host, nectar and native plants. All of our plants are grown without the use of harmful pesticides.
