Native Butterfly Garden Plan


So, here's my plan! I've filled our garden space up with native plants for attracting butterflies for both nectar and places to lay eggs for caterpillars. There are a few spaces for adding plants in the future and the lay-out is actually pretty flexible. We'll likely make some decisions the day of planting and beyond. Anyway, this will help us lay out the beds appropriately.

Comments welcome!

Hi Lee -- I appreciate you spearheading this. I don't know if we've met or not (you'd probably know me, for better or for worse, by my dog, bailey, as we spend a fair amount of time at willowbrook). I like all of the info on your blog, and your priority on keeping the creek "wild." Along those lines, I wonder if putting in steel posts and granite pathways for the butterfly garden detract from that wildness. Are they necessary? I can't decide... and it worries me a bit.

There are many perennials that can add to the beauty of any place in a few months, if due care and attention is paid while choosing and growing them.
