What you can do to Attract Butterflies
Butterflies are such a delight to have flittering around the
home garden. Butterflies are attracted to flowers by their color,
and a large mass of blooms is easy for them to spot.
Native wildflowers serve as butterfly lures. Growing native
species not only restores habitat, but also provides special
nectar and larval food sources for the butterflies. When food
sources disappear, butterflies go elsewhere.
A combination of wildflowers and grasses that bloom from early
spring through early fall will keep butterflies well fed
throughout their season. In designing the layout of your garden,
try to use large splashes of color.
Butterflies visit literally thousands of plants both to sip
nectar and to lay their eggs. If you include some plants from
each of the families listed, you will increase your chances of
attracting a variety of butterflies
Butterflies avoid high winds and appreciate windbreaks. If your
garden offers no shelter from wind, plant tall, dense shrubbery,
or trellised vines, then butterflies will not stop for long.
