New Butterfly Garden by Queens Botanical Blogger

There are a bevy of beautiful butterflies fluttering in to visit QBG’s new Butterfly Garden!

Butterfly Garden

Created by students of the Lowell School under the supervision of Maureen Regan, Horticultural Therapist, the Butterfly Garden was completed just four weeks ago.

Though the plants are still young, their flowers have already been doing their job attracting a variety of butterflies including Monarchs, Black Swallowtails, and White Cabbage Moths.  “Chairs” created from fallen tree trunks offer visitors a great spot to relax and watch the show!
