tips on growin' butterfly gardens...
A successful butterfly garden has plants that meet butterfly's needs during all their life stages. To attract butterflies to your garden you need to provide them with food, water, shelter, and places to lay their eggs. Plan your garden so that there are flowers blooming most of the year

Butterflies use sunlight to regulate their body temperature. They need sunlight to keep themselves warm, but the outside temperature can also become too hot for them. A good butterfly garden should provide both sunny places and shady places where butterflies can cool off while they eat.

Do not use insecticides in your garden! They will kill butterflies.

The following are common, easy-to-grow plants that attract many butterflies

Butterfly Bush (Buddleia)
Phlox
Bee Balm
Purple coneflowers
Sage
Butterfly Weed (Asclepias tuberosa)
Lilac
Marjoram

Determine which species thrive in your area, then determine what host plant the butterfly needs - see the table below.
