LEPIDOPTERA TRAIL VIRTUAL TOUR
Food for Larvae and Adults

  Caterpillar host plants are not the only plants you’ll see while walking the Lepidoptera Trail. A variety of nectar flowers serve newly metamorphosed flutterers, and attract other nearby adult Lepidoptera to lay their eggs on adjacent host plants.
 
 
Baptisia hosts eastern tailed blue caterpillars. Its flowers also provide nectar for a variety of butterflies.
