If you like butterflies, this book can help you bring more into your garden. It guides you through the process of planning a garden that attracts and supports butterflies at every stage of their life cycle. It includes recommendations on which plants and garden features to incorporate, how to arrange them to catch the attention of butterflies, and butterfly-friendly garden maintenance.
A gallery of butterflies in their caterpillar, cocoon and adult stages helps you identify your visitors, and an appendix recommends plants that appeal to each species, organized by climate zone (a map of climate zones in British Columbia and Washington state is included). While the butterfly and plant guides are specific to the Pacific Northwest, the general gardening guidelines are helpful for butterfly gardeners in any region.
