Eastern Yellow Swallowtail on Lilac

Butterflies will visit your outdoor abode more

often if you supply them with the necessities

for all four of their life stages: egg, caterpillar,
chrysalis and adult. Food (plants and flowers),
water, shelter and host plants (to lay eggs
on), are what the leaf-eating caterpillars and
nectar-sipping butterflies demand. Provide
these essentials with the following plants and
they may consider an extended stay….
