Butterfly Gardening - How to Attract Butterflies with Flowers

There is absolutely no denying that gardeners have a deep love of nature. Not only do we love our flowers and vegetables, lawns and shrubs, we also love the animals that are attracted by the fruits of our hobby.

Other Names: The original name for Butterfly was Flutterby.

Among those creatures of nature, are a wide range of colorful and beautiful butterflies. Almost weightless and seemingly floating on the breeze, Butterflies in the yard  and garden, bring delight to young and old alike.

If you are looking to attract Butterflies to your yard, you need to know but one single word......Nectar. And with that one word, we give the advantage to gardeners in luring them. A gardener knows that the nectar come from flowers that he or she can grow in flower gardens to feed the butterflies. The more nectar in the flower, the more popular the plants will be to a butterfly. It will also work to attract many species of birds and bees, too.

Did you know? Butterflies taste with their feet. Hmmmm.

As you look to attract butterflies, look for flowers with lots of nectar. Also, look for flowers whose blooms offer a suitable place for a butterfly to land and rest while feeding. Here are some flowers that you will want to add to your flower bed or landscaping plans, to attract butterflies:
