Painted Lady Butterfly.

The Agastache seems to be a butterfly magnet.

Thanks, Eileen...

Can only agree with Irish. Agastache is great for lots of insects.

There were bees on them, too - and several butterflies this afternoon!

Lovely close up, we had quite a few here as well before yesterdays torrent !!

I have a small patch of Agastache which I grow specifically for the insects.

Well done with this photo Spritz.Seems as if the Painted Ladies really are appearing in great numbers !

It was lovely to see them!

Toto - is it hardy in your garden? Is it this one?

30 Jul, 2009

 

Yes Spritz to your second question. It is Agastache anisata. The answer to your first question is sometimes although I don't rely on it and save seeds every year and raise new plants.

OK - thanks -I read it up, and it says 'hardy'...but I wasn't at all sure. It doesn't have the appearance of a hardy plant.

I actually think her colours are prettier when her wings are closed!

Yes, I agree Spritz......I took a pic very similar to this and I thought the same....:o)
