The answer is C, ~1000 native butterflies which represent around 10 species take up residence at Tinker Bell’s Butterfly House.   Depending on the time of day you visit you may see more of them active, if you don’t see many flying take a close look at the plants to find them hiding.   In the garden there are many different types of nectar plants for them to hide and feed off of including Butterfly Bush, Blazing Star, Canna Lily, Cape Royal Plumbago, Coral Honeysuckle, Passion Flower, and Scarlet Milkweed.
