Since my last blog post about watching butterflies, I have seen a new butterfly on the Boneset everyday. I’m sure Boneset attracts more butterflies than a Butterfly Bush. The native insects prefer native plants and even though Butterfly Bush looks really pretty, it’s not native.
These little Skippers love the Lobelia.
This is the last of the 3 new native plants to bloom. I picked them up at Bowman’s Hill Wildflower Preserve in the Spring and love them so much! This is called Obedient Plant.
