This weekend I spotted two friendly floating insects in the yard.  I think they were both Eastern Tiger.   Butterflies have good taste in beautiful plants, include any of the following, and surely you’ll spot a few in your garden this summer.

Adults enjoy the nectar of:

  • chives
  • verbena
  • marigold
  • aster
  • coneflower
  • butterfly bush
  • sage
  • clover
  • oregano
  • zinnia
  • cosmos
  • goldenrod
  • milkweed
  • globe amaranth
  • lily
  • mint
  • lavender
  • black-eyed-susan
