This Butterfly House is painted with high quality exterior paint with a distressed finish. Dimensions are 12" high, 14 1/2" wide and 7 1/4" deep. The side opens for easy viewing and cleaning. Butterflies will enter this house on cool nights and will possibly lay their eggs. Bright colored flowers (especially old-fashioned varieties) will help attract the butterflies, as will a small piece of fragrant fruit such as a banana peel, placed inside the house. It looks great outside in the flower garden.
