Gregg's Blue Mistflower

This Texas native is a pollinator magnet! It's a perfect "beginner" plant, and a favorite of seasoned butterfly gardeners because of it's low water needs.

Milkweed 

This plant is essential to the Monarch butterfly life cycle. It's the only plant the caterpillars will eat. You can help support the Monarch migration by planting native Milkweed.
