Host Plants for Butterflies and Moths .... from the Prairie Nursery

As anyone who gardens with natives knows, native plants attract a remarkable number of pollinators to the garden. Butterlies get most of the attention with their bright colors and sun-loving ways, but a variety of beautiful moths can be supported as well. While not all moth are pollinators, they do have unique realtionships with native plants, and provide an important food source for birds as well.

If you want to see more butterflies and moths (Lepidoptera) in your yard, the addition of specific host plants is an empowering way to take an active role in supporting species diversity.
