Attracting Butterflies

Posted 2/17/2011 3:34pm by Gray Bellamy.


Butterflies are one of the most fascinating and mesmerizing creatures on our planet. I could spend hours watching them drift from flower to flower. Most of us love having them in our garden and are happy to grow certain flower for their pleasure.

You can lure butterflies to your garden by planting flowers that bloom in succession. For early spring blooms, consider violas or pansies; for mid to late summer, purple coneflower, lantana, verbena and sunflowers are a few of their favorites.

Butterflies love variety. Think about planting feathery herbs, such as dill, fennel, and parsley. these herbs serve as host foods for larvae of the black swallowtail butterfly. Be sure to include all of them when designing your herb garden.
