  • Posted by East End District

Jenkins Garden, the new green space at the corner at Lockwood at Harrisburg, was recently planted with native trees and plants that will provide shade and a place for the public to enjoy nature while waiting for the bus or light rail.The garden, developed with the assistance of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Brazoria County Naturalists Society, is designed for wildlife, specifically pollinators, including birds,butterflies and other insects, and includes a water feature. Native Texas grasses, shrubs, and trees will provide nectar, berries and seeds.

In Houston, butterflies can be seen almost year round, and there are about 100 different species found in the area. The secret to attracting them to your garden is to plant the correct plants that support the caterpillar (larvae) or the butterfly (with the nectar). Jenkins Garden has plants that are suitable for a variety of caterpillars and butterflies, as well as migrating hummingbirds. The following references provide more detail, but our friends at the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Brazoria Naturalists Society have done most of the research for anyone interested in a butterfly and hummingbird garden.

  • Choose plants that flower at different times of the year to provide nectar and pollen sources throughout the growing season
  • Plant in clumps, rather than single plants, to better attract pollinators
  • Provide a variety of flower colors and shapes to attract different pollinators.  NAPPC’s Pollinator Syndrome  table provides information on the types of flowers that different pollinator groups (bats, hummingbirds, bees, butterflies, etc.) find attractive.
  • Whenever possible, choose native plants.  Native plants will attract more native pollinators and can serve as larval host plants for some species of pollinators. Most of the plants listed below are easily available in nurseries specializing in native plants.
  • You MUST have a sunny location for these plants. Other requirements for a good garden are also a must, such as a well draining bed with good soil. Consult a generally accepted guide such as A Garden Book for Houston, by L. Herbert,  for these basics.

Forty-five students and faculty from Furr High School’s Green Belt group helped install the garden, which has become part of the network of sidewalks, trails, and parks that support pedestrian and bike activity throughout the East End. Funding for this project comes from the Connecting People with Nature grant, administered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service, and TIGER grant funding from the Federal Highway Administration.
