Butterfly Garden in Castroville, Texas
includes salvia and lantana (Lantana camara)
A mix of native and hardy cultivars will bloom all summer
Though mostly for butterflies, this colorful character was found among the foliage of our native Texas lantana.
I have another species Lantana montevidensis growing on a slope near the street.
A fast flying Mourning Cloak enjoys a yellow variety across the street.
As does this Giant Swallowtail.
I wish I could grow more of the native Lantana camara, but I have so much shade.
Thanks for visiting. May wildflowers be in your summer forecast.
