Planting a Garden with Wings

Butterflies are one of the most amazing creatures. They have four distinct life cycle stages–egg, larvae, pupae, and adult. They go from egg to caterpillar then make it to adult as a butterfly. In order to plant a successful butterfly garden, you have to plant food plants, also known as host plants, and you must plant nectar plants for the adults.
