Butterflies are attracted to lots of colorful plants. I'd plant flowering tobacco, impatiens, marigolds, phlox, sunflower, verbena, asters, bee balm, butterfly weed, chrysanthemums, daisies, live forever, purple coneflower, bergamot, black-eyed Susan, blazing stars, boneset, butterfly flower, coreopsis, ox-eye daisy, and purple ageratum in any combination. You're sure to have a great showing of butterflies. Enjoy!
