Butterfly Plants

After searching through a list of what plants caterpillars eat, I went to Tree of Life Nursery and picked out two more plants. I got a buckwheat plant, Eriogonum fasciculatum foliolosum, and a plant called false indigo, Amorpha fruticosa. I picked those species because of the plants I could find in the nursery, those two seemed to be the most important for butterflies in my area. Unfortunately I seem to have bought the wrong false indigo plant. I wanted Amorpha californica. I haven't yet decided if I want to keep it or not.

I also decided to post some of my photos of native plants to reddit.
