Butterfly Effect is a native plant nursery for perennial wildflowers and plants native to the Finger Lakes.
Our garden-ready plugs and starts support local rewilding projects and build connective pathways for butterflies, hummingbirds, and other pollinators.
By creating native plant gardens, we can help preserve the natural heritage and biodiversity of our region. Each of us can play an important role in a community effort to restore our living landscape.
We want to populate local landscapes with native plants to create pathways for pollinators and local wildlife.
And we need your help!
Why Native Plants?
Native plants provide nectar, pollen, seeds and shelter to native animal populations.
They are adapted to local climate and soil conditions,
so they grow well.
They require less water.
They have deep root systems which prevent erosion.
They require fewer pesticides.
They reduce air pollution and sequester carbon.
They promote biodiversity and stewardship of our natural heritage.
They are beautiful!
