Choosing flowers that bloom at different times. Butterflies will stay in your garden if there’s a constant source of nectar.

Once butterflies are visiting, you can entice them to take up residence by:

Providing host plants. Butterflies lay their eggs on host plants and most are very particular. Milkweed, Nettles, and native grasses are the most popular. The prized Eastern Tiger Swallowtail prefers a tree, either a Sycamore or a Willow. The bolder Spicebush Swallowtail prefers Ash, Sassafras, and Tulip trees. If you live on the edge of a field or meadow, you probably don’t need to worry about host plants—there are plenty of them nearby.

Providing shelter from the wind and rain in the form of tall shrubs, vines, and even small trees.
