    The best would be the butterfly bush (buddliea Davidii) It comes in a variety of colors – grows to 4-6 ft., comes back bigger and better each year if you cut it back in the late fall.

    Generally, butterflies are attracted to any flowers in the field because of its nectar. since your question looks what sort of flower. I suggest that you plant Mandarin Santan, American Roses, Daffodils and Sunflower. These flowers love sunlight.

    Butterflies are attracted by blue flowers, birds by red flowers.

    zinnias, altheas, lantana, verbena

    Mexican Sunflowers actually attract butterflies even moreso than Butterfly Bushes! I would also recommend Butterfly Bushes, though. Other flowers great for attracting butterflies are Zinnia, Blue Lobelia, Milkweed (this attracts Monarchs, among others!), Aster, Lantana, Verbena, and Joe Pye Weed.
