Default California Native Nectar Plants for Butterflies and Day-flying Moths

California Native Nectar Plants for Butterflies and Day-flying Moths

compiled by Jeffrey Caldwell

Healthy plants under good moisture conditions produce more nectar. Usually plants in sheltered, sunny locations get more attention.The minimum patch size in flower for one species to be "found" and used is roughly 25 square feet. Maximum interest is generated when eight or more attractive species in significant patches are in flower simultaneously. For butterfly gardens, bigger is better!

That's really nice. I don't 'spose there's 1 of these out there on night flying moths for the midwest? I've been looking for that for a while.
