You can find this beautiful Perennial garden on Aida Place, across the street from the historic entrance of the Marjorie McNeely Conservatory. Shortly after coming to work for the conservatory in 1999, Deb who is now one of our Horticulturists designed the Enchanted Garden, to resemble a butterfly. The center “body” of the butterfly is the asphalt path and the outer perimeter of the garden is shaped like the wings of the butterfly. There are well over 25 different plant species in this area, plus in the spring each year, many annuals are planted for immediate color.

Come and visit this garden soon. All of the flowers are in bloom right now.
