Neighbor Program Sign Up Time Again

 You can really help the garden with no effort or cost to you.  Sign up for the two "Neighbor Programs" offered by Kroger and Randalls.  For Kroger, this has to be done again, one time each year at this time.  The funds we get from these programs provide new plants and materials to refresh the garden throughout the year.  To open a copy of what is below so you can print it out, just CLICK HERE  Or.. you can just ask the Kroger Clerk to enter our                Barcode Number  1 00000 82607   then scan your Kroger Card

Another Garden Visitor

I'm from Huntsville and a friend took me to Matzke Butterfly Garden today. I was impressed with all the lovely flowers and hard work. We noticed a shrub outside the fence near the water bowl that had green butterfly shaped seed pods. I believe they were seed pods. Can you tell me the name of the plant?
Thank you,
It is always nice to hear from visitors who drop a note to our email at
As some of you know.  S.W. was asking about the Butterfly Vine. The flowers are yellow and the seeds are in the shape of a butterfly. Easy to start from seed, full sun.
