Butterflies and Moths

DID YOU KNOW?

Butterflies taste with their feet. They can be found on the patio visiting the Lantana, Verbena or sunning themselves on the arborvitae.

Butterflies and moths belong to the same order of insects (Lepidopteran), however, moths outnumber butterflies by a 9-1 ratio.

If you plant it – they will come!
