Interested in attracting butterflies to your property? We offer native, nectar, and host as well as accent plants for purchase daily in our gift shop.  We also host big semiannual outdoor plant sales with more than 100 species available.

Discover which pollinator species you can attract and learn about the butterfly-friendly plants that work best in your landscape. Proceeds benefit the Florida Museum’s Butterfly Rainforest exhibit.

Daily in the Gift Shop

Visit our Collectors Shop just inside the Museum’s front entrance to see what plants are featured today. Below is what is likely available, but supplies are limited so when a species is gone, it will be replaced with a new species.
