So far I have swamp and tropical milkweed, plains coreopsis and wild potato growing. I also put some hollyhock and hollyhock seeds in my park bio sponges and hope to get them growing ASAP. I did plant some non-native nectar seeds like arroyo lupine, blue butterfly bush and lantana. Wish I could get the wifi to work on my phone to get pictures but its acting up. As soon as it work I will go pic crazy :)

Glad to hear you're growing something for butterflies! They can use all the help they can get this year!

Good for you. You should attract a number of butterflies with those plants. Hurray!
I garden for the pollinators.
