    I got this book as part of my research for a neighborhood project called Pollinator Parkways. I found it very useful in regards to plant selection as well as other needs for butterflies (and moths!), thinking about their lifecycle as a whole.

    Fascinating and strange little facts puncture the book – carnivorous caterpillars worshiped by ants, for example. Big gorgeous photos, some elementary butterfly classification. I finished it in about 2 days.

    A great book for beginners or experts. It has outstanding photos and goes into detail about what each plant offers for butterflies, moths and caterpillars (you cant have the first 2 without the latter!)

    I am a gardener. This is a great book that gave me a lot of ideas on how be more conscientious about planting for specific wildlife (butterflies) and includes plant lists for my specific region (Pacific Northwest). I have now added/replaced plants to attract butterflies. I have a butterfly feeder, and use the solution ration recommended with the feeder, but have never seen butterflies at the feeder. I do, however, see butterflies at my new butterfly garden! Yeah!!
