Our plant sale fundraisers offer a variety of uncommon to rare keystone species plants, native plants, host and nectar plants, that support butterfly and moth life cycles. We grow all herbaceous plants ourselves at our home-based nursery to guarantee that the plants we sell are safe for caterpillars and adult insects. Simply put: our plants are meant to be eaten!

The Pre-Sale starts on Sunday, September 24th at 10 AM on our website at www.backyardbutterflies.org/shop. The Pre-Sale is perfect for securing those plants that are limited quantity or high demand. It is also perfect for those who like to shop online or know exactly what they want. Pick-ups for online orders will take place during the dates and times of the physical plant sale.
