    hoheria angustifolia a flowering tree that is just beautiful and attracts dozens of butterflies.

    Swanplant flowers are favorites too.

    I love Sunflowers but our butterflies seem to prefer the cosmos in our garden.

    We have planted numerous Hebes at our place and because we have so many varieties there is at least one hebe flowering at any time of the year.We do have many other flowers in the garden such as marigolds, borage, rosemary, thyme, and marjoram,and many other flowers at various times however hebes are the consistent one flowering throughout the year. The butterflies just love it.

    The Monarch’s love my dahlias but I try to plant as many colourful flowering plants that I find among the swan plants. Everlasting flowers are great.

    My kids and I have planted 30 roses and 7 lavender plants and we have noticed the butterflies and bees are visiting! We are in a fairly new subdivision so our focus is on planting to attract insects and would love this prize!

    Zinnia. I have a garden full. I have a large wild garden perfect to add lots of butterfly plants into.

    My favourite is definitely hebe! We have a massive hebe bush that monarchs LOVE. I also have a purple tansy that I keep near the milkweed, if a butterfly has to stay a couple of days before leaving then it’s a nice, close nectar source.

    My absolute favourite is all the pasture & uncut lawn flowers that appear when we dont skin the grass down to ground level. What’s with all this mowing anyway ? Long grass in our landscape & garden design can look fantastic. Allowing so many tiny, beautiful grass variety flowers creates abundant feeding for all out small native butterflies. Under trees it protects the roots & helps keep the soil cool. Walk through the longer grass & you’ll be amazed by the variety of butterflies that will lift ahead of you. Not cutting lawns means less emisions & more time to enjoy the butterflies. Win/win.

    Our Bottlebrush tree has literally 100’s of monarchs in it every year – it’s a pretty magical site watching them flit around as we sit under the shade.
