One thing i've really been enjoying this summer is our butterflies.
We have a large yard and lots of plants and recently i've been trying to add some color to attract the butterflies.
My friend Sherri told me that butterflies love Pentas.
She was right! The butterflies love these!
I found a great website on Florida wildflowers and butterflies. You do a search to identify each by color, find what flowers attract butterflies or search by your favorite butterfly and see how to attract them.

This flower is called Lantana and the butterflies, bees and insects sure love them!
