Marisphere's The Ellen Ruth Memorial Butterfly garden

Garden Type: Butterfly | Sun: Full Sun | Soil: Combination | Established: 2010

The Ellen Ruth Memorial Butterfly Garden is named for my great-grandmother, Ellen Dean and my mother-in-law, Ruth Barnes. It’s supposed to be a Monarch Way-Station, but I also hope to attract Karner Blues and others. It’s also a native plant graden. I’m sticking in the center of the yard and hoping it will work with everything else.

Containing 0 plants, Marisphere's The Ellen Ruth Memorial Butterfly garden is an outdoor garden located in Hammond, IN, United States.

This is a Butterfly garden that is known to be in USDA Hardiness Zone 5. It has mainly Combination soil and receives Full Sun light.
