This is a great article. As I was telling my son today, years ago I contacted the local cooperative extension and told them that I was planning to plant a butterfly garden with native flowers. They sent me lists of native plants, invasive plants, plants to attract wildlife, etc.... I would highly recommend to all people to contact them.
