Attracting Butterflies

Butterflies like two kinds of flowers most, clusters of nectar filled tubular blossoms, and largeflat blossoms that provide them with landing pads. Purple, red, orange and yellow attract themost species, whereas blue and white flowers are less popular. Colour preferences can varyfrom species to species, so you should plant the entire colour palette. Especially valuable forbutterflies are early blooming flowers that are still in bloom after the first frost. Although sunloving flowers do the most good for butterflies, you should provide some woodland flowersas they tend to bloom early. A successful butterfly habitat provides food and shelter for bothadults, juvenile, or larval stages. Shallow water or stones in a bird bath will provide a watersource.
