What type of BUTTERFLIES are you trying to attract?
Twenty years ago, when moving plants to the landscape of our new home, we were amazed by the number of monarch butterflies drawn to our Autumn Joy sedum. At that time our elderly neighbor told us of years before when her honey locust tree was filled with Monarchs in the fall but that it no longer happened. The Pollinator Garden was created to ensure our neighborhood continued to benefit and be home to all pollinators but especially monarch and swallowtail butterflies.
