If you feed them they will keep coming! Learn about plants that are larval foodsources for some of our larger colorful native butterflies, and plants to grow to keep them around drinking nectar when they are adults. Discover how to make your own native bee nests and how to garden for honey bees. And explore how you can landscape to attract hummingbirds to visit your garden as they migrate through Central Florida.
