Win passes to the Brookside Gardens Wings of Fancy live butterfly exhibit in our April 2018 Washington Gardener Magazine Reader Contest
It runs April 18–June 30 from 9am–5pm, then daily July 1–August 31 from 9am–5pm on weekdays and 9am–5pm on weekends, and finally from September 1–16 from 9am–5pm daily,
Brookside Gardens South Conservatory features live butterflies. Come witness the butterfly life cycle as tiny eggs hatch into crawling, chewing caterpillars, which then encase themselves in jewel-like chrysalides and emerge as sipping, flying adult butterflies. Learn about the best annual and tropical plants, and hardy shrubs, to use as nectar sources to attract butterflies to your own garden.
Note: The exhibit is in a greenhouse, which is usually 10 degrees warmer than the outside temperature and more humid.
