Besides Butterfly Plants, What Attracts Butterflies?
Understanding why butterflies seem attracted to some areas but ignore others is helpful. They have some specific needs you must meet to bring them calling.
- Water puddles: Butterflies need a water source to help keep cool in the summer. So placing some butterfly plants near a bird bath or a butterfly "puddler" will make your garden more attractive.
- Continuous blossoms: Butterflies rely on nectar from blossoms for sustenance. Plant various flowering species that will "rotate" and bloom in continuous cycles.
- Plant native species: Butterflies have evolved to eat a diet of native plants. TN Nursery specializes in North American native plants, so when you order from us, you'll provide this for your winged friends.
- The shape and color of butterfly plants matter: They love flowers with a flat petal or cup shape but can also extract nectar from short trumpets. Their favorite colors are pink, purple, orange, red, and yellow.
- Include milkweed to help restore monarchs: Milkweed is the only plant that can feed Monarch butterfly larvae and caterpillars. Include it to help restore this threatened species.
