SUMME: Butterfly Milkweed blooms through the summer and fall and requires little water. It's great for the back of your garden as it can get up to 3 feet tall, and adds that pop of color towards the end of the season.

Variegated Fritillary (Euptoieta claudia) feeds on Butterfly Milkweed (Asclepias tuberosa)

Fall is my favorite time of year. Love this photo of a beautiful butterfly and lovely Butterfly Milkweed that blooms through the summer and fall.

How to Attract Butterflies to Your Garden

Fruit for Butterflies  Habitat loss, climate change and pesticide use have decreased butterfly populations. Many butterflies do not live on nectar alone, some species prefer, even require, overripe fruit to feed on. Decaying fruits have carbohydrates and minerals, neccessary to most butterflies. Supply them with flowers, fruit, water and plants for their caterpillar stage, and you will have a large and happy, diverse population.
