Butterfly Garden / Park in Sanjeevaiah Park
The park has been developed over 4.5 acres at the site. There are about 60 varieties of flowering and nectar-yielding plants and trees. These and other plantations play the important role of attracting butterflies.
The Urban Forestry wing of HMDA has developed an arboretum consisting of tree species as well as seven theme parks inside the Sanjeevaiah park.
HMDA commissioner Mr T. Chiranjeevelu said that at least 50 species of butterflies have been recorded in and around Hussainsagar.
“The butterflies are also attracted to the Sanjeevaiah Park, which has flowering trees, creepers and shrubs. At least 30 varieties of butterflies have been recorded at the site. Butterfly gardening is often aimed at inviting butterflies and moths to lay eggs as well.
The Hussainsagar and its surroundings have very wide diversity of butterflies. This ecosystem must be maintained and developed to improve bio-diversity.”
