IT'S NOT TOO LATE
Help the monarchs on their long journey back to Mexico for the winter. Plant their favorite food to nourish them as they travel back through East Texas on their way south. Last year we had swarms of monarchs on our Asclepias (Mexican milkweed). You can enjoy the same sight in your yard with a large patch of milkweed to attract them.
Another great butterfly plant is Buddleia, butterfly bush. One of our favorite varieties of this magnificent shrub is Royal Red. Long spires of bright magenta flowers bloom from May until the first frost, enticing butterflies to sip from its sweet nectar. Royal Red grows into a large bush 6-8 feet tall and 4-6 feet wide.
Plant flowers in large patches or drifts to attract butterflies. They are drawn to the sight of multiple blooms of the same type, not a collection of different kinds of flowers.
