Tiger, Spicebush and Pipevine Swallowtails, Gulf Fritillaries, American Painted Ladies, Sulphurs and tiny Skippers and Duskywings are among our visitors.
Most of the time there are enough Tithonia blooms
for each butterfly to have his own blossom.
Zinnias are popular.
A Gulf Fritillary stands his ground on Caesalpinia.
Pentas are also in shades of pink and a bright red.
White Pentas had the best posed visitors.
Lantana is popular at certain times of day.
Nectar Plants attract for feeding. Parsley, native Pipevine and Passiflora, wild Cherry, Paw Paw and grasses are among the Host plants for Larvae that I cultivate.
Zinnias and Lantana in near view, Tithonia and Duranta in background.
This is not the extent of blooms here in August, but most representative of the Butterfly nectar plants. Porterweed, late Agapanthus and Duranta are just coming into bloom.
Happy Bloom Day. Linking to Bloom Day at May Dreams Gardens.
More and different Blooms without butterflies are on my Wordpress Seedscatterer site.
