Butterfly Larval Plants
To experience the full life cycle of butterflies right in your own backyard, you must plant both larval and nectar plants. Important larval plants are Hoptree (Ptelea trifoliata), Pipevine (Aristolochia tomentosa), Passionvine (Passiflora incarnata), Spicebush (Lindera benzoin), and many more. Check out our complete offering of larval plants. Our free printed catalog includes a chart of butterflies and the larval/nectar plants they prefer. We also carry pawpaws, catalpa trees, buttonbush, and arrowwood viburnum. Our Zamia pumila (Coontie) is the only host plant for the rare Atala butterfly.
