Butterfly gardens bring nature to your yard
With so many different types of plants out there it is amazing at how so many of them serve dual purposes such as adding color to your yard as well as bringing the wildlife to your yard.
Butterfly bushes can reach a height of up to 20 feet and reach widths of up to 25 feet as well but require little maintenance and you can trim them and prune them to any size that you prefer. Butterfly bushes love partial shade but also need sun in order to thrive well. The butterfly bush can be found in red, pink, white, purple and a variety of colors on one bush. Butterfly bushes are great because they bring butterflies, hummingbirds and dragonflies to your yard.
Hummingbird vines are also great because they can reach heights of up to 35 feet plus and also can climb almost anything that it can get a grasp of. The hummingbird or trumpet vine can be purchased in orange and red and attracts many hummingbirds, bees and butterflies to your yard.
By combining butterfly bushes, Hosta, hummingbird vines and many other types of plants to your yard you can bring many different walks of wildlife into your yard so that you can enjoy many hours of enjoyment just by watching them play and chase each other around.
