• Provide voice direction
• Around 700 of those are found in the U.S.
• Due to urban development, butterfly habitats are being destroyed, and the butterfly population is decreasing. You can help expand the species by planting a butterfly garden.
• Diversity is key in selecting plants for your garden, be it based on height, flower shape or color, bloom time, and type, ranging from shrubs, to trees, to perennials, and even vines.
• A caterpillar relies on host plants for nourishment, while an adult butterfly feeds on plants that provide nectar.
• Adult butterflies prefer flowers with strong scents and bright colors, preferably red, orange, yellow, purple, and dark pink. Universal nectar favorites include zinnia, coneflowers, daisies, milkweed, butterfly-bush, and pentas.
• Research what types of butterflies and plants are native to your region, and plant a variety of both host and nectar plants in your garden.
• Plant your garden in an area that receives at least 6 hours a day of direct sunlight, as a butterfly cannot fly unless its body temperature is over 86 degrees Fahrenheit.
• Don’t use chemical pesticides in your garden, as they kill butterflies, caterpillars, and other useful insects. Instead, plant marigolds, petunias, mint, and other herbs that naturally repel pests, and encourage insects that feed on pests, such as ladybugs and dragonflies, to dine in your garden.
• Surround your plants with mulch, and incorporate large rocks or gravel areas into your garden to provide shelter for caterpillars and basking spots for adult butterflies.
• Plant young plants in spring that will bloom in late summer and early fall, as this is the time of year when butterflies are most populous.
• In addition to their natural beauty, butterflies serve as valuable plant pollinators, and cultivating a butterfly garden provides a microhabitat and unique location for a variety of butterflies to grow and thrive.
