The Alhambra Butterfly Garden is Now a Certified Butterfly Habitat

The Alhambra Butterfly Garden

Alhambra , CA

The Alhambra is excited to announce that our new Butterfly Garden has been officially certified as a butterfly habitat by the North American Butterfly Association.This lovely garden extends along the whole east side of the A9 building, forming a luscious foliage-filled corridor for butterflies to feed and shelter.

In order to be certified, a butterfly garden must provide both greenery for the caterpillars to eat and nectar for the butterflies. The Alhambra Butterfly Garden is home to 18 different shrubs, trees, grasses and perennials, all of which are attractants for butterflies. Specifically, the Desert Willow Trees, Narrow Leaf Milkweed and California Buckwheat provide food for the growing caterpillars, and the Toyon, Beach Aster and Ashleaf Buckwheat provide nectar flowers. Although the habitat is not species-specific, we expect to attract Monarchs, West Coast Ladies, Marine Blues, Painted Ladies, and Western Tiger Swallowtails.

“Our dream of creating a Certified Butterfly Habitat has finally come to fruition. This habitat provides a much-needed space for local and migrating butterflies to survive and thrive. The garden also adds greenery to the urban environment, and the native plants promote biodiversity and encourage natural pollinators that contribute to the health of the campus and the city,” says Megan Moloughney, senior development manager for The Alhambra.

Visitors are welcome to visit The Alhambra Butterfly Garden. The campus is open from 8am – 6pm Monday through Friday.
