Thank you. I will look into it. Yeah I think the false indigo may be too large but then again if its a top host plant- the other is black locest no way no how is Gabe going to let me plant one of those. It may be worth consittering if I prune it to a manageable size.

Great list, NEWisc!

I do have black locust growing here...and have seen my fair share of skippers here, too. If I recall from another thread, their larvae are quite interesting looking. I hope I get to see some, some day.

Alex, with a list like that, you have a LOT to choose from. Good luck.

...and if you have an interest in bonsai, perhaps you could grow several native trees like that...and it would not require so much space.
