Butterfly Friendly Flowers:

If you want butterfly visitors plant nectar and pollen rich flowers. Keep your gardening pesticides butterfly friendly or figure out ‘natural’ methods that don’t hurt butterflies. This ensures at least a few friends popping in.

Bee balm, Phlox, Zinnia, Lavender, Daylily, Cosmos are just a few flowers that can help bring visiting butterflies. There’s way more out there these are just a few I typed in.
