Attract Butterflies to the Garden with Butterfly-Friendly Plants


Img 6252

Watch butterflies flit about in your garden this summer when you plant the plants they enjoy! Our Garden Design Experts can help you find just the right butterfly-friendly plants for your garden. Many of these plants can be planted in containers so you can enjoy butterflies and birds on your deck or patio.

At the Marina del Rey Garden Center, we take special pride in offering the only plant that Monarch Butterflies need to sustain their lifecycle: Milkweed. We've partnered with select growers to help the Monarch population by having Milkweed available year-round. Right now, we have a huge selection of Milkweed in bloom in different sizes so you can help support Monarchs.

Gardeners Turn Out for 'All About Bees' Talk

Img 1750

Professional Beekeeper Susan Rudnicki recently visited the garden center to give a free talk about bees, nature's hardest workers. Bees pollinate our food chain and there are ways we can help them continue to do their vital work. Rudnicki highlighted plants bees love so you can plant them to help bees survive and thrive. Ask one of our Garden Design Experts for help finding the plants bees love.
