Butterflies in the city always bring smile and joy. They are a perfect small talk topic for grownups and playful companions for children. We are glad to be asked more and more often for butterfly gardens to be included into our new city projects. Toronto definitely was spotted by butterflies as well; as butterflies say, plant them and we will come... We have installed butterfly gardens all over Greater Toronto Area. Setting up the small butterfly garden is easier than many would expect. All we really need is a sunny spot and right selection of plants. You have to provide sunny spot, we will do the rest. To give you a hint, we have put a list of plants that butterflies definitely will notice; this list of hardy perennials attracting butterflies and hummingbirds might look short at first glance, don't be deceived by that, it will go long way... You might never look the same way on a sunny spot occupied by yellowish lawn after planting just a few of suggested plants. To see a list of varieties of each perennial and their complete descriptions, simply click its name.
