WANTED: Anyone Have Great Butterfly Nectar Plant Seeds? :-)

danny112596(10a)August 18, 2009

Hi Gardenwebers,

I am looking for seeds of your best nectar and host plants in your gardens. You see, i am trying to attract butterflies found not in my area of the LRGV (Lower Rio Grande Valley) of Texas but are found right outside it. I was wondering what everyone's opoinion was about their best nectar and host plants. If anyone can share some seeds with me for an SASE or SASBE and I can grow them maybe I can attract the butterflies.

The butterflies are:

Eastern Tiger Sallowtail

Two Tailed Swallowtail

Red Spotted Purple


Mourning Cloak

Ruby Spotted Swallowtail

Zebra Swallowtail

Harvester ( I know they feed of aphids but what plant would do good for getting them)

Garcia Tiger Swallowtail

Spicebush Swallowtail

Palamedes Swallowtail

Polydamas Swallowtail


I am looking for the best nectar and host plants for them(all butterflies).

Here is the link to a page with all the host plants.

Note- It does NOT list all nectar plants.

Plus I am looking for nectar plants of all over Texas and the U.S. Same goes for hosts.
