There are many native plants that bloom in the late summer into fall, such as goldenrod, asters, ironweed or sunflowers. Add such late-blooming natives to your garden, along with native milkweed on which monarchs will lay their eggs come spring, and you’ll help this butterfly and other pollinators.

 

 

Monarch Butterfly in Tournament Hills 

 

Imagine you’re a monarch butterfly on a long migration to your wintering grounds and spot a backyard full of fall blooming native wildflowers! You dive down to refuel on the nectar a kind gardener cultivated. You can plant sunflowers to feed the birds during the spring, summer and fall seasons.

 

 

These native plants will help butterflies also attract birds. Some birds need insects that are a critical food source especially in the winter. Many birds rely on insects for 90% of their diet. So plant as many native trees, shrubs and wildflowers as you have space for. Some trees and plants have edible berries for the wildlife in your area so consider these plants if you are planting for the winter.

 

 

Planting native plants is just one of the ways that you can help wildlife in your backyard. Provide food, water, cover and places to raise young for wild visitors to make your yard a safe haven

 

 

Whether you have an apartment, balcony or a 10-acre farm, a schoolyard or a business park, or anything in between, everyone can create a welcoming haven for local wildlife. Turning your space into a welcome haven for butterflies, birds, bees, plus open spaces for bunnies, squirrels and even deer.

Hi Sheila Anderson 

I adore watching the crowds around the feeder. When it gets low to empty they come right up to me about a foot away and just hang around mid-air looking at me. I always know that means the feeds are empty.

Hi Larry Johnston 

I had to refill the feeders Monday morning as they have totally emptied both feeders in 3 days. I think many of them are migrating through so I am going to keep it full every couple of days. Saw another butterfly this morning...it was a big yellow one so they must like my flowers.
