Butterfly Gardens

Add Natural Elegance and Beauty To Your Space With a Butterfly Garden

A butterfly garden adds natural beauty to your home’s exterior while also creating an environment that can help attract a wide range of butterflies, which play an important role in your garden’s health!

Backyard Science Class

Kids don’t want to learn about butterflies in a book, they want to grow up with them in their backyard.

With a butterfly garden, you can create a haven for butterflies to call home, while also enabling them to do their part in the plant reproduction cycle. Butterflies are a member of the pollinator population and are needed for plant reproduction.

Whether you live in a rural, suburban, or urban setting, creating a butterfly habitat brings beauty and sustainability right to your yard.

Natural Design

A successful butterfly garden must include the appropriate seasonal, native plants. This creates the healthiest environment possible. Without the proper plants, the garden won’t attract butterflies.

We use a variety of plants in our designs, including:

  • Milkweed
  • Penta
  • Salvia
  • Zinnia
  • Firebush
  • Fire cracker
  • Jatropha

Location is also important. Butterfly gardens must be placed in a sunny location. Ideally, the garden should get no less than 5-6 hours of sun each day. Butterflies need the sun to warm themselves. They won’t be attracted to an area that is overly shaded or windy.

Instead of spending hours researching plants for your butterfly garden, hire a professional instead. We have years of experience in creating beautiful butterfly gardens that attract pollinators year after year.

Our clients say it best

Troy's Tropics was second-to-none. Kudos to Dean (Lead designer), Daniel and the crew. We just had our entire landscaping in the front yard redone and it is divine - interesting/charming shrubs, flowers and trees. Thanks all for a job well done!​

We recently had Troy's overhaul our front landscape beds and were delighted with how smooth and professional the process was. A special thanks to landscape designer Dean Thompson who designed the layout, entertained all our input, and also provided helpful information on other plants in our yard. All in all, a terrific experience.

Best place ever! I was frantically looking for milkweed plants for monarch caterpillars. Had made several trips around town and 3X as many phone calls. On a whim, as I was returning home, I stopped at Troy's Tropics. Not only did he have milkweed, he had beautiful, large, 5 gallon pots. I'm now going/calling him first when I need additional milkweed!

I live in Riverview, FL and sure, there are plenty of plant nurseries closer to my house, however, I wish I had found out about this gem down in Sarasota way sooner. The plants here are all outrageously healthy and thriving and this makes them all stupendously b-e-a-utiful!!!

Nice plants, great staff! They kindly let me leave my plants there while I ran an errand and due to the heat. I really appreciate their kindness.

We had Alex from Troy’s Tropics redo our entire plant beds in the front of our home. We couldn’t be happier with the professional design, selection of plants and installation. Everything went perfectly. Troy’s stands by their work. My wife and I could not be happier. If you want major landscaping work done we highly recommend Troy’s Tropical
