Butterfly Garden Design Step by Step
What kind of butterfly garden plants should you include in a garden for butterflies ....perennials or annuals? Perennials come up every year and therefore are more carefree.

To attract butterflies, you will be focusing on brightly colored blooms and a safe environment for them to enjoy the nectar, rest, and have a drink.
