Monarch butterfly NYC and Caterpillar CA:  Here’s a Monarch butterfly on Buddelia daivdii at NYBG in late summer or early fall of 2008 and a monarch caterpillar on leaves of a milk weed (exact species do not
recall, did not write it down) in an arboretum in southern california in winter 2005…
Buddelia bushes are very popular in the USA for anybody aspiring to plant a garden to attract butterflies, for beauty, aesthetics, bragging rights or plain old ecology… and to help ma nature out… for no other purpose than pure unadulterated altruism…. Buddelias come in a myriad colors, most popular being violet and pink…
White buddelia is somewhat less often to see in home yards…
Since early 1990s there are several books available that help people plant and properly maintain a butterfly garden in th4e various eco systems in the USA…  I  have searched for similar books here, but to no avail… nothing of real value turned up…  I did find on4e book …  but it was nothing but a badly written short snippets of information copied from one of the american books…  bad show… Our butterflies are different and their needs, habbits etc must be different…
and there must be a very huge regional difference… If you know of pdfs or books or scientific papers on research done by legitimate researchers, I shall appreciate knowing the sources…
