Gardens Take Flight

There's nothing quite like a garden aflutter with wild butterflies in the afternoon sun. Attract your neighborhood beauties with this sand-and-water puddler, designed to hold on to natural minerals after water evaporates.

Its shallow well of recycled glass holds sand or rock salt along with a teaspoon of water. When the water evaporates (in under a day), butterflies are attracted to the minerals left behind from the hard water and sand/salt. Once butterflies know where they can find these minerals, they return regularly. Place it in a conspicuous nook to transform your outdoor space into an enchanted garden.

Designed by Jo-Anne and Gerald Warren. Handmade of stoneware and recycled glass in Canada.

“We want the world to be filled with more clay and less plastic.”

With a name like Amaranth, a mythical flower that is said to never fade, Jo-Anne & Gerald Warren's stoneware has a lot to live up to. Using a firing process that can exceed 2000 degrees, Amaranth products are built to last, withstanding all elements and seasons, yet maintaining their signature charm. Each stoneware piece is made in an environmentally friendly fashion.

This is a great addition to my native-plant butterfly garden. The monarchs found it in 2 days and led the way for other butterfly varieties. The puddler looks lovely and aids me in attracting even more butterflies by fulfilling their salt and mineral needs!

It's been closed to 2 weeks since I purchased the Butterfly Puddler. It's beautiful and exactly the type of item that I love to display in our backyard. BUT, even though I have followed the detailed instructions included, to the t, NOT ONE single butterfly has made use of it. I live in an area where we have butterflies galore because of fragrant and tasty vines and trees for the butterflies, and purchased the Puddler believing that the butterflies wouldn't be able to resist it. Unfortunately, I should've been contented since Mother Nature was/is already doing her job of attracting them "naturally". In essence, I do not recommend the Puddler - it's a pricey item purporting and failing (in our experience) in its aim.

    Comments about UncommonGoods Butterfly Puddler:

    I was disappointed when this item arrived, as the picture online showed a beautiful mix of blue, green, and clear glass in the center. The one I received is 95% green, 5% clear, and no blue. Definitely not as pretty without the variation in colors.

                    We only just placed it in the garden yesterday, so I can't comment on how well it works. But it certainly does look nice and adds to the overall aesthetic. Feels sturdy and I expect it will be able to withstand the weather, at least during the warmer months.
