Plant a Butterfly Garden
See lots of butterflies by planting a garden that will attract them. You can add plants to your yard if you have one, and plant a window box if you don't.
  •  
  • Grow flowering plants that attract local butterflies. Do some research online or in your local bookstore or library to identify these plants.
  •  
  • Include both the plants that adult butterflies collect nectar from and the plants that caterpillars eat.
  •  
  • If possible, let some dandelion and clover grow in your grass. Butterflies love them!
  •  
  • Plant your flowers in sunny spots. Also, provide rocks and stones for sunbathing butterflies!
