Hi Edwin,

I have tons of PorterWeed Seeds that I'll gladly share if you'll send a SASE.

PorterWeed is a flower grown in all Commercial

out on the internet.

I have recently planted a butterfly garden and have done quite a bit of research on what kinds of flowers they like. Here are a few of the best ones:

Butterfly Bush (Buddleia Spp)
Purple Coneflower (Echinacea Purpurea
Blazing Star (Liatris Spp)
Black-eyed Susan (Rudbeckia Spp)
Pincushin Flower (Scabiosa Caucasica)


Milkweed (aka butterfly weed)

I hope this helps! Good luck on your garden

Try growing asclepias (milkweed). Caterpillars got all over mine, ate it up, made cocoons in it and the kids and I watched butterflies emerge shortly after... really cool!

Starting a butterfly garden can be a fun project. I love watching beautiful butterflies floating around flower gardens. There are few things to consider when you start a butterfly garden such as where to plant, what to plant, butterfly garden design, how much sun the area get. For more info visit:
