This October, Butterfly Magic returns to the Gardens' Cox Butterfly and Orchid Pavilion!  Always a favorite with first-time visitors and Garden Regulars alike, Butterfly Magic is a fully immersive experience that surrounds you with rare butterflies, tropical plants and orchids in bloom. Be sure to check out the Chrysalis Exhibit, a fascinating look into the metamorphic life of a butterfly.  With a little patience, and luck, you may see a butterfly emerge from its chrysalis for the very first time!  With a constantly changing and growing display, and new varieties of Butterflies being added regularly, Butterfly Magic is never the same experience twice!
