This butterfly garden grows at the edge of a small woods with minimal effort on my part except to provide space. Native lantana has grown here for decades. In recent years I noticed that passiflora vines had begun to grow in the same space.
Controlled burns take out weeds in late winter, ready for return of lantana and the host vines for Gulf Fritillaries. I keep hoping to once again see Zebra Longwings. I saw a Zebra Swallowtail along the neighbor's fence off the dirt road when I was coming back from checking the wild garden. He didn't hang around for his photo op.
By June, we'll be seeing this: Passiflora blooms and immature fruit. Small blooms of Lantana.
The butterfly haven is visited by Swallowtails and Gulf Fritiallaries.
