The Butterfly Garden is located directly to the west over the South Rock Creek Crossing. The garden incorporates plants that attract butterflies commonly found in the Midwest, such as the Monarch. Butterflies need plants that provide food for caterpillars as well as plants that provide nectar for the mature butterflies. Some of the plants included in the garden are the butterfly bush, milk weed, sedum, lantana, coneflowers, zinnias and asters.
The Bickelhaupt Arboretum is now an official way station for Monarch Butterflies as designated by the University of Kansas Entomology Program. The Arboretum, one of only four such sites in Iowa and the only public garden so named in the state, is committed to monarch butterfly conservation and helping to assure the continuation of the monarch migration. Check out Monarchwatch.org. Other butterfly species welcome!
