6. Plant insect-drawing perennials. While you're choosing berry-producing plants, don't forget about perennial flowers that draw insects (which are also the number-one food source for birds). Out here in the eastern Plains and Midwest, a variety of adapted native choices work best: liatris, Joe Pye Weed, coneflower, sunflower, mountain mint, aster, coreopsis and milkweed. Time to plant three perennials: 10 minutes
Benjamin Vogt / Monarch Gardens added this to Be a Butterfly Savior — Garden for the Monarchs
Monarch butterflies are probably one of the most visible summer butterflies — they’re hard to miss. In fall they migrate thousands of miles, from as far as southern Canada all the way to the oyamel forests in the mountains of central Mexico. These conifer woodlands protect the monarchs from most weather, and as the insects cluster together in massive dreadlocks of butterflies, they keep each other warm. In the winter of 2012 to 2013, monarchs occupied only about 3 acres in Mexico, and while that number represents millions of monarchs, it is also a record low.
“As the last bits of habitat in the Midwest for wildlife like monarch butterflies are being removed, our gardens are becoming last refuges.” — Benjamin VogtLearn how you can help provide a refuge for these beautiful creatures (it’s easy) or, if you want to make more of a commitment, raise them yourself. Full story: Be a Butterfly Savior: Garden for the Monarchs
Get your garden ready for the butterflies. On New Girl, a monarch butterfly followed Prince around, even landing on his shoulder at his command. Make sure your garden is in top shape to welcome the monarchs.

the very best perennials to have in your garden is milkweed. I know that when most people hear the name, they cringe, grimace or turn up their nose, saying, "But isn't that a weed?" No, not really. And if it helps, we can call it wilkmeed. A magnet for insects, particularly butterflies and nonstinging bees, it is also a host plant for the monarch butterfly — a summer standby whose numbers are quickly dwindling as more farms and new housing developments are built, and more chemicals are being sprayed. Not only is milkweed a neat landscape plant from a design perspective, but it's also a hub for wildlife. A win-win!
