Bright colorful blossoms such as oranges, reds, yellows, and purples are most appealing to butterflies. Specifically, zinnias, phlox, butterfly weed, verbena, and lantanas are very good attractors in our area. Milkweed, clover, and fennel are also good host plants for egg laying by these beautiful insects.
