October 12, 2018

 

Think of adding essential plants for attracting butterflies: passion vine (not red) for gulf fritillary, zebra longwing, and Julia butterflies, milkweed for monarchs, cassia for Sulphur butterflies, coontie for atala butterflies, and Dutchman’s pipe (aka pipevine) for the pipe vine swallowtail (aka the blue swallowtail butterfly).

 

Plant herbs for cooler weather borage cucumber-like flavor is lovely in salads), chives, coriander, dill, cilantro, fennel, lavender, lemon grass (restrict to pots), parsley, rosemary, sweet marjoram, thyme, and sage.
