Butterfly attracting plants Q&A

Thinking about a butterfly garden?

Have you ever thought about starting a butterfly garden area, but were just unsure as to what makes good butterfly plants? Walking through the nursery here it is not hard to find the best plants and flowers for butterflies as they will show you themselves. There are many flowers and plants that attract butterflies, so it is good to do your homework to determine which types of butterflies are in your area and which ones you would like to attract. If you are a Monarch butterfly fan, you will definitely want some plants from the milkweed family in your garden. It is truly a joy to watch them eat the plant and then attach their chrysalis nearby and then hatch out to start the cycle over again. Yes they will strip your plant, but it will grow back just in time to watch them do it again. If you live nearby, you should come and visit our Garden Center in Fort Myers and see which plants the butterflies like best.

What about other pollinators?

Many of the same flowers that attract butterflies make the best plants for bees and butterflies. If you grow fruiting trees or a garden, it is always a good idea to plant flowers that attract bees and butterflies to help with pollinating your trees. Some plants such as the Passiflora or Passion Fruit family will attract butterflies and although they are pretty to watch, they will actually eat your vine. Be sure to plant enough for them too.

Where to buy butterfly attracting plants?

You can find plenty of butterfly attractors in our online store. If you are looking for plants for sale near you and you are in the Southwest Florida, Ft. Myers area, please visit our Garden Center located at 13890 Orange River Blvd., Ft. Myers, FL 33905 and see the fantastic collection tropical and subtropical plants. You may find a few surprises!
