Pineapple SagePurple Coneflower
Flowers with large petals and bright colors are a great way to attract butterflies. But there are other ways to welcome butterflies. Shallow trays of sand can be placed in the garden to give butterflies a place to relax and enjoy the sunshine. Shallow bowls of rocks give butterflies a place to get a drink of water. Butterflies will love small plates of rotting fruit. Bannanas, apples and grapes make great snacks for butterflies.
