  Plants That Attract Butterflies
Butterflies dancing on bright-colored sails bring joy into the garden that flowers alone cannot. To attract butterflies to your garden, you need the flowers that produce the nectar that butterflies drink. To raise butterflies in your garden you need to grow the plants that caterpillars (baby butterflies) eat, and they're often not the same plants!
