  • Butterflies are attracted to brightly colored flowers that are purple, orange yellow and red.
  • Single petaled and shallow blooms make it easier for butterflies to access the nectar. Narrow, deep trumpet flowers and those that hang downward make it difficult for butterflies. 
  • Group your plants in 3's or more. The bright colors of the plants multiplied make it easy for the butterfly to spot.
  • Place overripe fruit, mashed fruit, molasses, beer or fruit juice on a shallow dish to attract butterflies or soak an old dish towel in your mix and drape it over shrubs or low growing tree branches.
  • Butterflies love vegetable gardens, particularly beans, celery and everything in the cabbage family.
  • Asclepias tuberosa (butterfly weed or milkweed) are all around plants for butterflies as they are hosts from the caterpillar for its food onto the butterfly for nectar.
