Butterflies love almost every flower out there, so you can’t go wrong with the types of blooms you choose to plant in your garden.
However, you should definitely include two types–one that provides nectar for butterflies and one that provides food for caterpillars.
Here are some of the flowers that are most popular with butterflies: milkweed, coneflowers, asters, and Liatris.
And here are some of the plants that offer a source of food and a place for caterpillars to lay their eggs: passionflowers, sweet peas, and butterfly weed.
So now that you know how to create a butterfly garden, go ahead and get started on it. Happy planting!
