How to design a Butterfly Garden:
Watching butterflies bask in the sun or flit from flower to flower is one of the great pleasures of gardening. Here’s how to give these gorgeous creatures a good place to hang out:
Plan your garden to have non-stop color to keep the butterflies coming. Most butterfly garden designs incorporate quite a few annuals to help achieve a steady flower show.
It’s also wise to include perennials in your design to give your garden year-round interest.
Butterflies prefer orange, red, yellow, pink or purple and they’re drawn to flowers with flattened tops or to tubular-shaped flower clusters. It’s best to grow your flowers in masses to help butterflies find them more easily.
Arrange bloomers in drifts so that nearsighted butterflies can easily spot the large swaths of color. Focus on flowers that feature bright tones in your garden design. Most butterflies can’t resist blossoms in shades of pink, red, purple, and yellow.
These winged wonders also have a strong sense of smell and are lured by fragrant flowers. Faithfully deadhead blossoms to coax more flower buds to form.
Develop your butterfly garden design for a sunny location, since both butterflies and most of the plants they feast on thrive in sun. Try to choose a spot protected from wind.
