Schumacher Farm Park

Where Dane County's Rural Heritage Comes Alive.

Butterfly Garden Design

Planting milkweed to help support Monarch caterpillars is widely known, but what kind of plants do Monarch butterflies prefer to nectar from? Learn how to support not only Monarchs, but a number of other butterfly species with your garden design. From specific native plant species to garden features that support butterfly habitat, you'll walk away with great ideas to get started in your own yard. Every little corner helps in conservation efforts! And yes, if you build it, they will come.
