We caught the Nessus Sphinx moth feasting on a patch of phlox this spring. Remember that garden diversity brings more fascinating pollinators into the garden.
Expect the unexpected around every turn at Juniper Level Botanic Garden! Yesterday, during our Gardening Unplugged garden chat with Garden Curator, Amanda Wilkins, we came upon a happy pair of white satin moths enjoying the sun and each others company upon an Echinodorus leaf in the sunken garden.
We look forward to seeing you this weekend or next during our Summer Open Nursery and Garden Days.
This lovely male Imperial Moth showed up on the window by our main nursery entrance this week and has stayed put for several days…we’re enjoying his splendor.
