Butterfly Garden

PERENNIALS & SHRUBS
THAT ATTRACT BUTTERFLIES
Your butterfly garden should be planted in the sunniest location in your garden. Butterflies need the warmth of the sun to raise their body temperatures. Be sure to include purple, pink, yellow, and white flowers in the garden as these colors attract butterflies. Supply food (host) plants for the caterpillars to munch, as well as nectar plants for the butterflies. A small saucer of water is beneficial also for butterfly puddling.

Absolutely NO PESTICIDES should be used in a butterfly garden.
