There is a lot more to a Butterfly than two pretty wings! As the butterfly flutters from flower to flower it helps to pollinate, spreading seeds and creating more flowers. The flowers, in return, are feeding the butterfly. Butterflies are under threat and numbers are decreasing due to environmental change.
You can play your part in conserving butterflies and improving our environment by simply planting some of these flowers in your garden.
