What type of BUTTERFLIES are you trying to attract?
Monarchs for sure. We have only had two successful hatchlings. We have the giant swallowtail, Zebra Heliconian, Fritillary, Eastern and black swallowtail and Spicebush Swallowtail. Some others that I haven’t identified.
What NECTAR and HOST plants are in your garden?
Have about 5 orange milkweed plants that we are trying to explains on. Many other wildflowers in a cultivated garden bed.
I usually have cosmos, Black-eyed Susans, daisies, another tubular flower plant that I don’t know the name of.
We spread a variety of wildflower seeds in this spot.
