Re: Butterfly population

I have lots, Andrea. More than last year, it seems to me. We were talking about this yesterday, trying to figure out if we've added any plant material that is especially attractive to butterflies, especially the zebra. And couldn't think of anything.

And for those interested, the queen's wreath [Petrea volubilis] is still blooming. That's been at least three months of sprays of purple flowers. Amazing. The first year it bloomed, it bloomed for about a week.

it has been my observance over the past few years that here in coastal SC the
mass of the butterfly population does not show up until late summer, into
early fall. To date, I think I've observed maybe 5 butterflies in my garden.
By September, my yard is swamped.

So I'm wondering what you guys have observed across the country. Jim, do you
get them sooner than me since you're warmer? Just curious, I'm interested to
know if others have huge amounts already.
