Aligning your garden and landscaping to be beneficial to butterflies, pollinators, and songbirds is a great way to help support a healthy environment. Few things are as interesting and wonderful as butterflies and hummingbirds enjoying a vibrant and beautiful garden.

This year, the Institute is holding its annual native perennial plant sale entirely remotely. We have selected a beautiful array of plants that will bloom throughout the season and provide all the various food resources that butterflies, songbirds, hummingbirds, and other pollinators need to thrive. Every year, we sell out so be sure and order your plants ahead as we can’t guarantee plants will be available after May 7. You can order online at our Tidepool Shop or by downloading a printable order form, and then conveniently pick up your plants at the Institute May 14 – 15.

Many of the plants are in the gardens at either the Stone Harbor Bird Sanctuary or Institute for a firsthand look. You can also find photos and information about all the plants at our Tidepool Shop online.
