Butterfly Garden Project

About Our Cause
Becca's Butterfly Habitat is a community-based volunteer project dedicated to developing a problem area at Botts Nature Park in Mt. Sterling, KY into a garden that supports pollinators, specifically Monarchs (whose numbers have declined in the last several years) and other butterflies. This garden will serve as an outdoor educational space where local teachers can engage their students in hands-on activities about conservation, planting and caring for flowers, butterfly life cycles and the importance of pollinators to our world. All park users will be able to learn about the garden from educational signs and will enjoy the beauty of the 15'x15' landscaped area as well as the approximately 8500 sq. ft. "field of wildflowers" that will complete the garden space. The vision for this project grew out of a desire to honor the memory of my daughter, Becca, whom we lost in 2017. She was my nature girl. She loved all creatures great and small. If she were still with us, she would be leading this project. All proceeds from these sales will go to purchasing seed, mulch, bushes, stepping stones and a sitting wall that will serve as a windbreak for the garden. All labor, whether it is growing plants from seed, prepping the site, or constructing the wall, will be accomplished by youth and adult volunteers from the community. If you would like to contribute but don't want flower bulbs to plant in your own yard, have the bulbs you purchase sent to MSMC Parks and Recreation and we will plant them in Becca's Butterfly Habitat for you! The address is 3486 Indian Mound Dr., Mt. Sterling, KY 40353. ...

Help & FAQ's

What Does Hardy Zone Mean?

Hardy means they should return next year in the zones listed without having to do anything to them. While some items such as Gladiolus are indicated with higher hardiness zones (7-9), these items could also be planted in colder zones, but would need to be dug up in the fall and stored indoors for the winter. So, all Flower Power items will grow virtually anywhere in North America, but they will only return in the zones listed.

How Do I Find My Zone?

Use the color coded map to determine which zone you are located in. If your zone is listed as a "hardiness zone" for any of the products you can rest assured that they will be a perennial in your area. You can enjoy these blooms year after year! If your zone is listed as suitable but not hardy, these products will grow beautifully this summer in your garden, but may not survive the harsh winter.

Are There Planting Instructions?

Once you receive your order, you will be pleased to find that each item you purchased comes with a full color label that provides you with all the information you need to have success in the garden. Each label contains a bar code, the bulb size, plant height, proper spacing, where to plant, plus other features that will assist your customers in growing a beautiful bulb garden!
