Butterflies are welcome visitors and essential pollinators in gardens. Their grace and beauty are almost hypnotic. What do butterflies eat? Salvias are among the best flowers for butterflies, which are attracted by the nectar and pollen of sages as well as their color.
Salvias are nectar plants for adult butterflies. This list contains top sages and companion plants for feeding them. It also includes some companion plants that are important hosts for butterfly caterpillars.
Please refer to the Sage Words About Wildlife section of our Everything Salvias Blog for more in-depth information about butterflies in your garden.
At Flowers by the Sea, we continue to expand our offerings of Salvias and companion plants for wildlife habitat. Please check our online plant nursery catalog regularly for new listings and feel free to contact us concerning any questions you may have about butterfly plants and wildlife garden design.
