April 8, 2014 - PRLog -- As spring warms its way into summer, we see caterpillars crawling around looking for food. Try planting Spicebush to provide plenty of food for them.

Then before we know it, MAGIC! Butterflies are all around!

So…how can you bring butterflies into your garden?

Ways to attract butterflies to your yard are:

Keep the area protected from heavy winds
Limit pesticide use
Select fragrant, summer flowering shrubs & perennials for nectar
Have several plants for caterpillar food like the Spicebush
Have a few flat surfaces for resting such as a large flat stone
Provide shallow water sources

To attract your fair share of butterflies into your garden, plant shrubs and perennials that they enjoy such as buddleia (aka butterfly bushes), monarda, coneflowers, coreopsis, yarrow, Black-eyed Susans and Russian sage.

The Butterfly Garden Plant Package ( from Greenwood Nursery is a great value and contains all the plants, from caterpillar food to butterfly food, that you need for butterfly attraction!
