It’s a pleasure to watch butterflies and hummingbirds fluttering from flower to flower in your yard. Nectar and pollen-rich plants—ranging from annual and perennial flowers to flowering shrubs, fruit trees, and herbs—attract these beautiful creatures. The fragrant plants they favor are often referred to as butterfly plants.
If you would like to grow a butterfly garden or add aromatic plants to your flower bed that will attract hummingbirds, drop by our garden center at Cypress Creek Landscape Supply! We carry a wide range of flowers, herbs, shrubs and trees that butterflies and hummingbirds love.
Our selection of butterfly plants includes daylilies, marigolds, lavender, foxglove, geraniums, petunias, zinnias, and phlox along with many more. We carry flowering shrubs like Buddleia (also known as Butterly Bush) and Indian Hawthorn that butterflies are lured to. You can also find sweet smelling herbs like dill, fennel, and sage to feed butterfly larvae and attract bees to your garden.
Residents, contractors, and landscape architects across Tampa visit the garden center at Cypress Creek for hearty and beautiful flowering plants to make their summer gardens complete. If you don’t know whether or not the flowers or shrubs you have your eye on are butterfly plants, ask one of our lawn and garden experts! They’ll be happy to let you know if it is a good choice for your butterfly garden or if there is a better alternative.
