Native Butterflies


Butterflies and moths are targeted with kiosk roof plantings within Bonhoeffer Botanical Gardens, plants that larva need for survival (e.g., Milkweed for Monarchs, native to eastern areas; Kiosk 7 has had a huge hatch of Red Admirals the past 2 years). If you see and photograph a butterfly, we’d very much like to use the photo.  Please send jpegs or pngs to
