Create your own Butterfly Garden
A butterfly garden is nothing more than growing flowers and plants that will attract these colorful and beautiful creatures. Not only will your garden be a delight to look at and enjoy, you will also create a safe habitat for them.

When considering which flowers to plant keep in mind that butterflies like nectar plants like the butterfly bush, purple coneflowers, sage, beauty bush, sunflowers, lilacs, snapdragons, and zinnias. Try staggering the wild flowers with the cultivated plants. You will also want to stagger the blooming times (time of the day and year) to keep your garden active longer. Keeping groups of the same plants together will make it easier for the butterflies to see than singly planted flowers.

Another way to attract adult butterflies to your yard is to offer places for females to lay their eggs. These are called host plants. Some females are pickier about which host to lay their eggs on than others. You will need to find out what kinds of butterflies are native to your area to know which types of host plants you will need to grow.
