I love watching butterflies flit around my yard. Not only are they enjoyable to watch, but they also serve as pollinators for some plants.
If you want to get serious about attracting butterflies to your landscape, you must provide for their basic needs. This includes food, shelter, liquids and a sunning location.
One way to encourage more butterflies to your landscape is by utilizing plants that serve the needs of all stages of the butterfly. This means planting nectar plants and host plants.
