I ended up getting pictures of only three different kinds. Looking them up in my copy of "National Audubon Society's Field Guide to Butterflies, North America", this is what I learned:
American Painted Lady
Range is subarctic North America to Mexico, Hawaii.
Host plants include everlastings (Gnaphalium, Antennaria, Anaphalis). This one had a small part of its wing missing on the upper left corner.
Resides in southern US, west and north to Oregon, Ontario, New England.
Host plants include plantain (Plantaginaceae); figworts (Shrophulariaceae); stonecrop (Crassulaceae); vervain (Verbenaceae).
Range is from Arizona to Florida; can be seen in California; British Columbia
Host plants include violets and pansies (Viola); flax (Linum); passion flower (Passiflora); stonecrop (Sedum lancolatum); moonseed (Menispermum); plantain (Plantago).
As the summer continues, I hope to be able to take pictures of even more butterflies! It's exciting to know that some of the plants in the garden have been host plants. Although I have purposefully put some plants in the garden that are known as butterfly magnets, I have never actually tried to include their host plants. I now see how that could be a fun part of gardening. I may have to start looking into that!
Do you intentionally put host plants in your garden to attract butterflies?
