How to Create a Garden that Attracts Butterflies

Zinnias, Mexican sunflower, rudbeckia, and lantana are nectar to the butterflies

Plant native species and plant them in clumps

Dill, fennel, and parsley are herbs that attract butterflies

Hold off on fall cleanup: some chrysalises remain through the winter in the foliage of the garden

Have a plant saucer full of wet sand

Don't use pesticides
