10 Tips for Attracting Butterflies

Butterflies are a beautiful and colorful way to make your garden come to life. Here are some tips to help attract butterflies and make them decide to call your garden home. When it comes to your garden, plant in drifts, which butterflies are more apt to notice. Use species that bloom at different but overlapping times and include late bloomers, which are often lacking elsewhere. Adding flowers with a lot of colors such as red zinnias attract more butterflies. Combine both nectar and host plants so butterflies stick around to lay eggs. Butterflies are a very unique insect. Setting out large stones for them to warm up their wings in the morning, or rotting fruit full of nectar can attract butterflies. Remember to avoid insecticides; even organic ones can kill helpful insects. Consider a nearby windbreak to calm the air for safe landings, and provide a shallow saucer of water and sand. And there you have it, several ways to attract butterflies to your garden.
