& Herbs To Attract Butterflies
Nectar flowers provide a source of food for

aster, black-eyed Susan, butterfly bush,
butterfly weed, cosmos, goldenrod, lantana,
lavender, liatris, marigold, purple
coneflower, and zinnia. Butterflies are
attracted to masses of color and fragrance, so
try to plant groups of flowers instead of
single plants. If space is limited, however,
