Answer: Butterfly gardening is a wonderful pursuit. I highly recommend a book tilted Butterfly Gardening: Creating Summer Magic in Your Garden, by the Xerces Society/Smithsonian Institution (ISBN #0-87156-615-X). Here is a short list of species (from Appendix B of the above book) which reside in your area: Zebra Swallowtail, Giant Swallowtail, Tiger Swallowtail, Orange Sulfur, Eastern Tailed Blue, Purplish Copper. You'll be happy to hear that there are many more! The book gives specific recommendations forplants that attract each species. What a great reference!
