Zoro Garden

Zoro Garden is a sunken garden located between the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center and the Casa de Balboa. In this 1915 stone grotto, a butterfly garden has been planted which contains both the larvae and nectar plants needed for all cycles of the complete life cycles of butterflies. Milkweed, sunflower, passion vine and California lilac were included as suitable plants for the butterfly larvae (caterpillar) stage. Butterfly bush, lantana, pincushion flower and verbena were added as nectar plants for the adult butterflies. Miniature indentations built into rocks collect small pools of water for the monarch, sulfur, and swallowtail butterflies that can be seen among the colorful perennials and majestic Ficus trees that surround the garden.
