Great job. Saved me a lot of work too. Our native plant society is setting up a both this fall about native host plants and I volunteered to help. Now I can print out your list.

It's been a long long time since I have laughed this hard.

NEWisc, this is a fabulous resource! Thank you so much for putting it together. I wrote about it today. This is the kind of information that people are really looking for. The host plant list is very thorough and the native plant nursery list is a great resource as people are searching for a place to get natives. Thanks

NEWisc-
Thanks for the fabulous lists you put together which matches plants and butterfiles. I copied and pasted the information into a document I can store on my computer. I hope you don't mind that I did that.

You put a LOT of work into this and it is VERY much appreciated.

I don't actually use one in my yard because I have 3 ponds adjacent to my yard with plenty of exposed moist soil. But I think including a picture of one in an article is a good idea, so I'll try to remember to make one just for that purpose.

Thank you!
I'm glad that you found the list helpful. And if you have room at your booth, see if you can put one of these up (another resource to share):

I hadn't really thought about jumping into this project right away, but I also hadn't anticipated such an enthusiastic volunteer! Let me take a wee bit of time and put my thoughts together on this project. I will need to find someone with some design skills to volunteer to help with that part. My design skills don't go beyond 'put the plant wherever there's an empty spot'.

Thank you for your nice comments. Getting the word out about native plants is a passion of mine.

I can't take credit for the excellent native plant nursery list. I only linked to it; to get as many resources for making a butterfly garden in one spot as I could. That List is a product of the Administrators and Staff here at WildlifeGardeners and the many members that made suggestions for the list. It has been carefully screened by the staff, and I think it's one of the best native plant nursery lists on the internet.

You're Welcome. I don't mind at all, I'm happy to hear that you found it useful!

Its going to be at a state park, so the DNR don't want us to hand out of papers. They said we could hand out business cards but i don't know how that would work.
But I am bring a copy of the list that has the Wildlife Gardeners logo on it.

Oh milkweed. You are too cute. You probably are a shoe-in to be picked.
