Creating the perfect yard filled with all the best plants is a lot easier than people may think. Choosing the right plants can and will attract all the wildlife you desire, including birds, butterflies, and beautiful ladybugs. Gardening with quality native plants does offer a plethora of benefits and is so worth investing in. Native bird-attracting plants have been shown to provide nectar for bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds that will make your garden a haven for them. Not only that, but they will also provide nourishing seeds as well as fruits with time.



Plants For Specific Uses



- Sunflowers

Sunflowers are some of the most gorgeous flowers out there that signify longevity of life and loyalty. Along with their beauty, they happen to offer food that’s a favorite of various birds. The birds that love them most include chickadees, jays, nuthatches, grosbeaks, cardinals, and finches. Birds also love purple coneflower, aster, elderberry, and serviceberry as well. So investing in these plants, in particular, will help bring a unique blend of birds to your garden with ease.

- Plants For Caterpillars and Butterflies

It’s important to remember that different plants attract different things. Caterpillars although turn out to be butterflies do not get attracted by the same plants like them. Caterpillars are most attracted to milkweed, violets, and asters. Milkweed, in particular, happens to be the only host plants made for monarchs making it the most beneficial to invest in. As for butterflies that have already broken out of their cocoons, they are most attracted to ironweed, joe-pye weed, goldenrod, bright asters, and yellow coneflowers. The plants with the most nectar are adored by butterflies, as they provide the most sustenance for them.

Overall, your garden, when infused with all the right plants, can create a lovely sanctuary for these species. It is also recommended that you prioritize using natural plants as opposed to getting bulk plants that can be detrimental to certain birds and butterflies. Focusing on quality over quality will surely pay off in the long run, as no species will be harmed by doing so.
