Cottage Garden Plants

Butterfly Paradise Pre-Planned Garden

Cottage Garden Plants

Cottage Gardens use low-care perennials combined in a natural, informal style for a nostalgic look of your “grandmother’s” garden. Cottage gardens are a paradise for songbirds and pollinators (hummingbirds, bees and butterflies) with their diverse mix of flowers. They’re also an excellent source for cut flower bouquets.
