Heavenly planting for bees and butterflies
Nursery: Swan plants will be food for monarch butterfly caterpillars.
Just as humans are attrac-
ted to certain colours, so
too are bees and butter-
flies. If you want to entice
these beneficial insects
into your garden, consider what
colour flowers you plant.
A whole garden planted out in red
blooms is unlikely to attract many
bees. That's because bees cannot
see colours at the red end of the
They do, however, see colours at
the other end of the spectrum -- the
blues, purples and greens. And,
unlike us, they also see ultra-violet.
''This is often called 'bee purple',''
according to the International Bee
Research Association. ''When you
look at a white flower, the petals
just look white. But when a bee
looks at a white flower it also sees
lines that guide it down to the
nectar -- these lines reflect UV light
and are invisible to us, but to the
bee they are 'bee purple'.''
Which is why you often find bees
buzzing around white and blue-
purple flowers in the garden.
One plant in particular they like is
Blue-purple flowers also attract
butterflies, and all the better if
they're rich in nectar. When these
overwintering insects emerge in
spring, they need a ready source of
In spring they're attracted to
aubretia, rosemary, viburnum,
philadelphus, lilac and honesty,
among other plants.
In summer, they will go for
cosmos, petunia, scabiosa, snap-
dragon, statice, and verbena.
Buddleias are perhaps the best-
known butterfly plant and will
flower over a long period.
For a butterfly haven, position
plants in a sunny, sheltered spot,
because butterflies need warmth.
They also like an easy landing --
clusters of flowers or large flower
heads provide convenient plat-
forms for a food stop.
Bury a bucket or bowl to its rim,
fill with sand and pour in water or
a sweet liquid such as stale beer or
a sweet drink. But sweet drinks
may attract wasps -- something you
don't want in your garden.
Butterflies also rely on plants that
supply food other than nectar.
A good example of this is the swan
plant. This is where the female
butterfly will lay her eggs and
provide food that the caterpillars
