    Butterflies just love our zinnias. They have such a long flowering season too so are a great (and beautiful) choice.

    My tagged butterflies were reported sightings twice last year, both times on blue salvia! In my garden in the spring, besides the swan plants, the perennial wallflowers and scabiosa have been popular nectar feeding sources. Also Lavatera now that it too is in flower. Lavender Grosso attracts butterflies and bees throughout the summer and late summer into autumn, beautiful golden yellow Helianthus are a magnet for the butterflies as are the Mexican Marigold too of course, grown from cuttings from Monarch Butterfly Trust!! For the winter I have invested in a bush “Edgeworthia papyrifera (syn: chrysantha)which has beautiful yellow, daphne like flowers to feed the butterflies when they emerge on sunny winter days. A friend who is also a butterfly lover told me Cleome are very good too . . . must try them!

    I have so many “favourites”, but I think overall it has to be the swan plant, just because I can watch all stages of our beautiful butterfly from it’s laying of the eggs, to the Caterpillar stage, through to its emergence as the beautiful Monarch butterfly. Through the past 4 years I have been able to show these transformations to my granddaughter who was in awe watching her first butterfly emerge from its chrysalis. I love watching them fly around the flowers on a bright sunny day

    I only really noticed the butterflies hanging around our swan plants (although it’s like a swan forrest really as we have so many and are really big). I will have to keep my eyes open as to what other plants they like in our garden. This would be amazing to win. My daughter and mother have a real connection in the garden and this would pull in another treasured generational memory for us having more butterflies around

    I had lots of butterflies on my Dahlias last year. Tt was the first year I had some in bloom. They also loved my Buddleia, the Lavender and of course the home sown Swan plants. This year I am developing a “meadow garden” made from the Butterfly and Bee pasture ranges into the lawn areas, saving on mowing and giving the Butterflies and Bees LOTS of choice!
