Watch through the fine netting of these pop-up butterfly abodes as caterpillars shed their skins and form chrysalides, then emerge as beautiful butterflies. Observe them for a few days and set them free—this ubiquitous butterfly, the Painted Lady (Vanessa cardui L.), can be found throughout North America.
Use the enclosed form (and add shipping and a $5 handling fee for the butterfly larvae) to send for your caterpillars: 3–5 arrive for the Butterfly Garden, and 6–10 arrive for the Butterfly Pavilion; both include complete instructions and fascinating butterfly facts.
