    yea, if you plant a butterfly garden then you need to accept the bad with the good. I find it easier to just plant a lot of what they want because they can’t eat all, but I know that there will be some plants they will strip clean. I like to attract the swallow tails and they love dill and parsley so I make sure I plant a lot. Anyhow, just keep trying and you’ll figure it out. It is also okay to plant other flower like nectar flowers and bright colored flowers. these will help hide the food plants. Good luck

    I have lots of echinacea in bloom right now and the monarchs are loving it! I also have buddleia (white) that many different varieties of butterflies seem to love! My garden has lots of perennial Asiatic lillies, mallow, foxglove, roses, daisies, bee balm (Bergamot), violets, tulips, columbine, ferns, coreopsis, daylilies, gladioli, petunias, pansies, herbs of all kinds, impatiens. The bees, wasps and butterflies all seem delighted as do the humans. No chemicals are used on any of the vegetables, flowers or herbs.
