Hi Sandra, I have a small patch of these where I designed my pond to overflow (so the soil remains damp). On Tuesday when I was in the garden, they were visited by a male Orange-tip butterfly - I rushed indoors to grab my camera and .... you guessed .... it had flown by time I got back. Grrr ! Watch out for the females because they choose this plant to lay their eggs on (wouldn't that be great).
I found this brilliant site for butterfly identification if you're interested. :-))
