Butterfly Bounty is a four-season fiesta for pollinators of all shapes and sizes. In early spring, the Catmint and White Rock Soapwort invite honey bees into the garden. In summer, butterflies are found feasting on the vibrant orange and yellow blossoms of the Blanket Flower and Black-Eyed Susans. The Coronado® Hyssop provides a fall refreshment for hummingbirds before their migration south, and the seedheads of the Coneflowers provide a hearty winter meal for birds. Nearly all of the flowers in this garden attract butterflies, so get ready for an extravaganza of color and life with your very own Butterfly Bounty! Attract the local butterflies to your yard with this 100 sq. ft. perennial garden featuring 29 full sun xeric plants.

What To Expect

  • Our xeric gardens feature anywhere from 14 to 30 starter plants in 4-inch pots. Plants will be small relative to their mature size, and they will not be in full bloom.
  • "First year they sleep, second year they creep, third year they leap!" During the 1st and 2nd growing season, xeric plants will be in the establishment phase – requiring regular watering to encourage a deep taproot system, and not yet having reached their full size. On average, allow 3 years for your Xeriscape garden to reach full maturity!
  • Gardens will easily fit in a small car  - yes, we're talking Mini Cooper small - unless you ordered multiple gardens (we're not judging). One garden will come in either one or two 2 ft. x 1 ft. trays (pictured left).
  • *When necessary, Resource Central shall select appropriate plant substitutions.

What Customers Say

Transform Your Landscape into a Paradise for Pollinators

“Without the gardens I would not have been able to transform my sad south facing turf hill into a butterfly attracting Xeriscape garden. Thank you!”

City of Thornton Customer

Great Plant Selection at a Fantastic Price

“The Garden in a Box is a great program. I use it to plant beautiful xeric perennials in my flower areas for a bargain price compared to buying plants individually at the greenhouse.”

We Take Care of the Design For You!

“One of the biggest benefits of the Garden in a Box for me was the Pre-Planned selection and planting guide. I didn't have to do any research or figure out what looks best. I just spaced the plants out dug a hole. Done! For me it was the path of least resistance.”
