This is the ultimate collection of butterfly-friendly plants that will attract and host butterflies and caterpillars of various species including Monarchs, Swallowtails, Otto Skippers and Painted Ladies.
Lupine are late Spring-blooming plants that will attract early butterflies and provide them with the nectar that is in short supply during the early season. Wild Lupine also attract the endangered Karner Blue butterfly.
Blazingstars are pollinator magnets with Monarch butterflies drawn to their striking purple clusters of flowers in the fall.
