Choose plants that will attract butterflies to you yard. Plant a variety of flowers with different bloom times. So you can attract butterflies all season.
Here is a book that I found helpful when planning my butterfly garden:
|Sweet Autumn Clematis|
|Happy Returns Daylily|
Many people view the dandelion as an invasive weed; however the butterfly finds the nectar in this plant to be most desirable. I recommend that you grow dandelions in a large container. Set the container next to your butterfly garden.
Refrain from treating your yard and garden with insecticides as they will kill the caterpillar and butterfly by poisoning their forage. A butterfly can be killed by resting on an insecticide treated leaf.
Get a closer look at the butterflies by setting a garden bench next to the garden.
