Hummingbird/Butterfly Garden

Located within the Monica A. Evans Arboretum, the Hummingbird/Butterfly Garden provides an enchanting location for celebrations.  Designed to nurture and support butterflies and hummingbirds, the garden is filled with plantings and flowers that feed and provide shelter for these delicate creatures. The Garden steps down into the hillside via a brick pathway and is surrounded by hedges and shrubs, creating an intimate enclosure. The beauty of the garden changes every week during the summer and into the fall, so no two events will ever be alike. The garden pathway is paved with memorial and honorarium bricks highlighting special moments in the recipient’s lives.
