Butterfly Gardens & Habitats
NABA's Program for Butterfly Gardens & Habitats has produced regional butterfly gardening brochures. Each one focuses on a particular region of North America and includes such information as top butterfly nectar flowers, nectar flowers that don't work in this region, top caterpillar food plants, common butterflies for your garden & yard, local & unusual butterflies for your garden & yard, and general comments about gardening in this region. NABA greatly appreciates the volunteer contributions of the local experts who wrote these brochures, with editing and layout by Ann Swengel, coordinator for NABA's Program for Butterfly Gardens & Habitats.
These regional brochures are meant for use with the set of introductory butterfly gardening brochures. These introductory brochures explain the concepts and techniques of butterfly gardening applicable throughout the U.S. and southern Canada. These information-packed brochures include Straight Talk about Butterfly Biology, Basics of Butterfly Gardening, Flowers for the Butterfly Garden (including garden hints and sources), and Familiar Butterflies of North America.

Just a note to say "Thank-you" for the information I got from your site on planting a butterfly garden. I bought the plants you recommended and now have dozens of beautiful butterflies fluttering around my back yard every day for weeks now.
