Other great nectar plants commonly found in our central Texas gardens are lantanas, butterfly bushes (Buddlea), pentas, mistflowers (Eupatoriums), mealy sages, Turk's caps, and wild bergamot. There are other types of butterflies that we can attract to our yard through careful choice of plants. For black swallowtail butterflies, I offer my triple curled parsley, which will reach a height of two and a half feet in May, and will have hundreds of beautiful blooms. The caterpillars will then get busy eating the foliage. (Other hosts for black swallowtails are dill, fennel, and rue.) The list of host and nectar plants is lengthy and includes many native and adaptive species that thrive in our region with little care. Gulf fritillaries and zebra longwings have a passion for passionvine, for example Red admirals like pellitory, and for tiger swallowtails, it's Texas ash. Many of these plants add beauty to our landscapes and are tolerant of drought. For more detailed information, a visit the Austin Butterfly Forum website ( would be a good idea. Why not add a few of these drought- hardy species to your garden and be a good Lepidopteral host to these marvels of nature.. and if we can all provide more milkweed for the monarchs, we should be able to continue to support and increase the number taking part in these epic migrations.
