I would love to start a perennial butterfly garden in my zone 5b, morning-sun yard. The space I'll be using is north-facing and in the back of the yard. i've seen lots of birdies around but want butterflies to join them, too! Thanks.

There are lots of annuals and perennials you can plant to attract butterflies. Here's a publication for the University of Illinois that explains how to create a paradise for butterflies. Hope you find it helpful in choosing your plants: http://urbanext.illinois.edu/g...
