Butterfly Host Plants

Every butterfly has  "host plant" that they lay their eggs on.  The eggs hatch on that plant and the tiny caterpillars eat the leaves until they reach the right size to form their chrysalis.  A good butterfly garden has Host plants and pollinator plants for the full life cycle of the butterfly.

Please see our 2024 PLANT LIST PAGE for detailed descriptions of our native plants and the butterflies that they host
