Includes the best of Florida's native flowering plants that attract and feed native butterflies. These are the plants that naturally supported themore than 160 butterfly species that bred in Florida well before the impacts of man became noticeable. The book is also about the butterflies themselves--for it is only by understanding what butterflies are that we can be effective in providing for them. Finally, this publication is about using our knowledge of butterflies and plants to design a butterfly garden. Property owners throughout Florida can use this book to create their own butterfly gardens using the plants native to their region of the state, and these gardeners, entrusted with the welfare of their butterflies, will form a network of environmental stewards that will help balance whatever impacts the future holds in store for Florida.
