Beautiful Butterflies!
photo of butterfliesVisit our expanded Texas Native Butterfly Tent featuring over 250 native Texas butterflies and a display of the monarch butterfly metamorphosis- from egg to larva to chrysalis to adult. Learn why wild flowers need butterflies and which flowers you can plant to attract butterflies to your own backyard! Kidz can actually enter the butterfly tent and observe butterflies as they feed on nectar from milkweed, pentas, lantana and exotic fruit. See how many butterflies species you can identify. 

The Monarchs need our help! Please go to www.saveourmonarchs.org FaceBook page to see how Wildflower! kids can help save the Monarch butterfly.

"I purchased 1200 packets of Milkweed Seeds from the Save Our Monarchs Foundation to give to parents of the children who visit the "Texas Native Butterfly Tent" in the Kidz Korner at Wildflower! with the promise that they will plant the seeds in their gardens and backyards- a collective effort to replenish lost Monarch breeding habitats in our region of the U.S. due to massive wildfires in Texas and Oklahoma, drought, pesticide use, shifts in land management and also natural enemies. Since 2000, children attending the annual Wildflower! Festival have enjoyed the live butterfly tent where they can see and be up close with Monarchs and other Texas native butterflies feeding on a host of perennial plants recommended for attracting butterflies in our area. This year, I hope to stress the importance of replenishing milkweed plants across America as a way each of us, even children, can help the Monarch Butterfly species survive - one milkweed plant at a time."
