As our gardens expand, so does the variety of visitors we see here. Our Blue Pea Vine has caught the attention of the Long-tailed Skipper (Urbanus proteus) as evidenced by the eggs and larva we have found on the leaves. Shown below, the newly-hatched larvae are no bigger than a mosquito larva.
Attracting butterflies to your yard is easy when you have the right larval host plants. Visit our Garden Shoppe for a variety of host plants, as well as showy nectar plants. We are open from 9:00am to 5:30pm seven days a week.
