We want to design a Butterfly Garden - help please
Well, it all started when I decided the veggie garden in the back was just too sterile looking. I've freed up some area back there and put some flowers in for now but we want to create Butterfly Gardens in both the front and the back yard. The front of the house faces north with full-sized live oaks the length of the yard, sunny in the morning and shaded from mid-afternoon on. The back only has one moderate sized live oak tree but it's on the east side of the yard so the garden back there is just the opposite, shaded in the morning and sunny from afternoon on. Below are some pictures of the front yard, that's where I want to start this spring/summer since the shade will be cooler to work in. Cathy wants me to leave two of the plumeria but other than that everything you see is coming out and the area will be mulched, and new plants placed as I figure things out. If anyone coming to the Tampa swap 4/17 wants some mature Monkey Grass let me know, I hate to just pull it out and throw it away. I need suggestions for Butterfly plants, host and nectar, than can handle the sun and shade you see in the pictures below. Thanks!
