The Q&A Archives: Passion Flower Plant

Question: I'm trying to figure out which is the best passion flower plant to attract buttflies to lay their eggs on.
Do you know which species is the best?

Answer: Passiflora incarnata 'Lavender Lady', with its lavender flowers, is popular with many species of butterflies. It especially attracts Zebra Heliconian and Gulf Fritillary (which feeds exclusively on this plant).

Best wishes with your garden!
