Chantel,

There are many great plants for butterfly gardening in your area. Most blooming plants are going to need full sun or close to it. When you plan the garden remember to select blooming plants that attract the adults and also plants which are food for the caterpillars. The following websites are good sources for more information than I can fit in this brief reply:
