Maddy’s Tip #5: Planting Butterfly Friendly Plants!

maddy's tips

If you have a yard, then this tip is perfect for you. Along with other plants, you can grow species that attract butterflies! Plants such as Black Eyed Susans, Lavender, and different variants of Milkweed are some examples. These provide habitat and food for the butterflies. Butterflies are an important pollinator, so increasing their habitat will allow them to flourish and breed. Growing these types of plants in your yard will help to strengthen the ecosystem and support biological diversity. So next time you are buying new plants for your yard, consider buying butterfly friendly plants!

Today’s Fact:

Butterflies and other pollinators including bees, moths, birds, and bats pollinate over 75% of the world’s flowering plants.
