In attracting butterflies to your garden, it’s important to understand what butterflies need and are looking for: nectar. The ancients, who believed that nectar fell directly from heaven, named it after the wines of the gods. A butterfly’s wish list also includes sunny open spaces, shelter from the wind, and fresh water. They also look for host plants where they will lay their eggs (some butterfly species are fussier than others as to what plants are best); once the larvae hatch, the host plants will serve as food for the developing caterpillars. To encourage butterflies to your garden, it is good to include food for both young (host plants) and adults (nectar plants).
