"When designing a butterfly garden, you need two types of plants: species that provide nectar for adults, and species that are host plants for butterfly larvae. Most people focus only on the plants that produce nectar. Even worse, they often turn to alien plants that are promoted as being good for butterflies." — Douglas W. Tallamy, Bringing Nature Home
