Monarch butterfly garden

Bring the beauty of monarch butterflies to your garden by creating a vibrant habitat. Discover top ideas to attract and support these majestic creatures and enjoy the enchanting sight of fluttering wings in your own backyard.
Flowers are usually chosen for gardens based on color, ease of care, or another physical feature. Milkweeds (Asclepias spp.) are somewhat special in this regard as they’re the only plant that monarch caterpillars – which grow into the threatened monarch butterfly – can eat. If there’s no milkweed, there won’t be any monarchs. A lot of milkweed planted now goes into butterfly and pollinator gardens.

Milkweed thrives alongside butterfly-friendly companions such as coneflowers, black-eyed Susans, bee balm, asters, and goldenrod. These plants provide nectar for butterflies while supporting the monarch caterpillar. How do coneflowers contribute to the overall biodiversity of a butterfly garden? What are some strategies to attract a diverse range of butterfly species to the garden?
