Butterfly Milkweed blooms through the summer and fall and requires little water. It's great for the back of your garden as it can get up to 3 feet tall, and adds that pop of color towards the end of the season.
butterflies "puddle" in shallow water for minerals. set out a dish with rocks and tap water or create a bare spot with moist soil in butterfly garden. Could use birdbath or dig a spot where rain water collects and put a tray filled with rocks down. Or could dig a shallow sport where it is wet in yard. // thisoldhouse
