    "While a flowers color, shape or scent will attract butterflies to some degree, the biggest draw by far is the blooms nectar. Adult butterflies typically have very cosmopolitan tastes, best served with a smorgasbord of nectar-rich flowers, especially those with flower clusters or daisy-like blooms, such as purple coneflower, mums, yarrow and butterfly weed, as well as tubular or bell-shaped flowers. Not every nectar flower is suitable as food for butterflies."- Birds and Blooms
