Butterflies are attracted to fragrance and also prefer certain colors.  Purple, yellow, orange and red seem to be their favorites.  If you would like to view them in large numbers, you will need to provide food for their caterpillars as well as nectar for adult butterflies.  Offering a wide variety of plants, full sun and a shallow water source such as an old saucer from a clay pot or a bird bath will insure that your garden is “butterfly friendly.”


Hummingbirds like colorful, nectar-rich blooms, also.  These tiny, whirring visitors are a joy to watch as they visit each flower in your garden.  Make sure to group at least two of each variety of selected flowers to attract the hummingbird’s attention.  The addition of a hummingbird feeder works as a welcome sign to these little fairies of nature.
