#PANativePlants

Butterfly weed is very beneficial for pollinators, like butterflies. Did you know that a popular butterfly plant, the butterfly bush, isn’t that beneficial at all?

Butterfly weed acts as a host plant for butterfly larvae, something the invasive butterfly bush fails to do! ➡️ https://bit.ly/2SjRoqa

Without a native food source, populations of butterflies can suffer. If you want to help out these pollinators, be sure to plant native butterfly weed! #PANativePlants #iConservePA
