One can create a perennial Butterfly/Bird garden, using annuals, or by mixing the two. Butterfly Bush, is an invasive: Buddlea davidii. butterfly Weed, Asclepius tuberose, is a native milkweed, that flowers in a gorgeous orange. The bush, above, is spread by the birds that eat the seeds. If you have one, please try to prune the forming seedheads as soon as the flowering is done.
