Before I left Fredericksburg I bought to small Blue Mistflower plants since these seemed to be such Butterfly magnets.
I already shared pictures of multiple Queen Butterflies feeding on the Blue Mistflower, but in going through my pictures from the week, I found this particular photo of one Queen Butterfly.
Something struck me about this picture. I assumed that this Butterfly was just resting on the plant, since it didn’t look like it was flowering. However, you can clearly see that the Butterfly does appear to be getting nectar from this plant (or at least trying to). I’ll need to do some research to find out the nectar qualities of this plant.
